PREreview Clubs are collaborative preprint reviewing groups around a shared affiliation, affinity, interest, location, or any other common cause. Club members work together to give preprint authors timely, constructive peer feedback. These clubs take the place of the older “Communities” on our website. We’ve overhauled those groups into our new PREreview Clubs with community feedback from design sprints, user research interviews, and collaboration with partners like ASAPbio and HHMI.

How can I start a PREreview Club?

Anyone who wants to form a collaborative preprint reviewing group can ask to start a Club. While we plan to automate the process more in 2024, PREreview Clubs are a concierge service. That means you should complete this form to start a PREreview Club. We’ll get back in touch with you by email to describe the next steps in the process and to make sure it’s a good fit for what you want to achieve.

If everything seems right, we’ll set up your Clubs page and go through our workflow with you to ensure that your Club and all its participating authors are credited on the reviews you author together.

You might start a PREreview Club based on affinity, geography, or language. You might also create a Club for your class, lab, institution, or organization. You might even start a Club for your friends who love collaborative preprint review!

You can check out our PREreview Clubs onboarding document here to learn more.

If you’re interested in starting a club after that, complete this form, and we'll contact you soon to begin the process.

Can I join an existing PREreview Club?
