    Share a Preprint

    This article will walk you through 5 easy steps to share a preprint. Sharing your preprint will allow you to receive quick feedback on your research and gain a wider audience for your work. Because your preprint will be on the OSF, you’ll get access to other features like analytics on how many others are accessing and downloading your work, a persistent identifier to allow your preprint to be cited, and the ability to add supplemental files, like data or analysis scripts.
