#SciWriLive: Preprints in the time of COVID-19

June 3, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


In the race to learn as much as we can about COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus that causes it, preprints have become many scientists’ #1 tool for releasing new findings to their peers and the public. For science communicators and reporters, that can pose unique challenges in a time when accuracy is more important than ever.

Join a panel of science journalists, editors, and PIOs on Wednesday, June 3 at 2PM Eastern for a special #SciWriLive discussion about the promise and pitfalls of preprints in the ever-changing era of COVID-19.
