"The term “preprint” most often refers to a manuscript that has gone through a peer-review process and now awaits publication in a traditional journal. A preprint accessible over the Web may also be referred to as an “e-print.”
Originally called the OSTI Preprint Server. These pages contain links to thousands of servers, sites, and documents contributed by individual authors that contain e-print information in discipline areas of interest to the DOE's research activities.
A free service started in January 2007. It is a permanent, citable archive for pre-publication research and preliminary findings in biology, medicine (except clinical trials), chemistry and earth sciences.
