What is a peer review reference?
Peer-reviewed (refereed or scholarly) journals – Articles are written by experts and are reviewed by several other experts in the field before the article is published in the journal in order to ensure the article’s quality. (The article is more likely to be scientifically valid, reach reasonable conclusions, etc.)
Does arXiv count as publication?
A publication on arXiv doesn’t count, strictly speaking, as an actual publication (in the sense that it hasn’t been peer-reviewed yet). But uploading papers on the arXiv is a pretty standard method of letting other people know about papers that you plan to submit for publication in an actual journal in the near future.
Is it legal to upload papers to ResearchGate?
ResearchGate is not a publisher and does not accept articles or papers for publication. Rather, members can track their publications, store private copies, and make their published or unpublished work publicly available on ResearchGate – if they have the rights to do so.
Are preprints reliable?
But what preprints gain in speed, they may lose in reliability and credibility, critics say, because peer review can finger mistakes and deficiencies. That’s a worry especially for findings about medical treatments that nonscientists might misinterpret, possibly at risk to their health.
