Launch of StemRxiv

StemRxiv on StemJournal website (preprints for stem cell research)

22 April 2020 | Amsterdam, NL – Today, we officially launch a brand new component of StemHub. We are pleased to introduce our preprint portal StemRxiv, which enables you to search and submit stem cell preprints via our StemJournal website.

22 April 2020 | Amsterdam, NL – Today, we officially launch a brand new component of StemHub. We are pleased to introduce our preprint portal StemRxiv, which enables you to search and submit stem cell preprints via our StemJournal website

StemRxiv (pronounced "stem archive") is all about preprints. It is a portal that provides researchers with the options to submit, publish, and access preprints across all areas of stem cell research. Where can you find this portal, I can hear you ask? Its current home is right here on the StemJournal website, accessible from the top menu bar.

Choose to submit your preprint via StemRxiv and to publish your study in StemJournal for your research to be more visible and more citable. If you jump to the relevant section of stemjnl.org, you can check out the options for transferring your preprint to StemJournal (this has been up and running since late last year, read more here). 

    What is brand new is that you can now able to search for stem cell preprints directly from this website! Head over here for more details: stemjnl.org/preprint-search.


    Search Preprints

    The unique aspect of StemRxiv is that it is a dedicated portal for stem cell researchers to discover the latest research findings before they are published in peer-reviewed journals. It is the one place to visit to uncover the latest updates from the area of stem cell research that is of interest to you.

    You can browse the StemRxiv Preprints section here to discover more about the benefits of publishing your stem cell research as a preprint and to discover more about preprints in general in our FAQ section.

    Submit Preprints

    To submit your preprint, you can either: submit your paper in its current format directly to StemJournal and we will automatically transfer it on your behalf to either of the bioRxiv or medRxiv preprint servers; or click the buttons on our submit page to send your preprint directly to bioRxiv and medRxiv. If you already have a stem cell preprint on either of those platforms, you can arrange a "direct transfer" to StemJournal as discussed in this blog post



    The StemRxiv portal is a key component of the StemJournal website and the wider StemHub. We will offer a single point of access and a “one-stop-shop” for stem cell research as part of our open science trajectory of: Poster – Preprint – Paper

    Note: The poster aspect of this trajectory will be the next phase of this project and will soon be available as part of StemMeets.
