Indian preprint platform launched

Supporters of open-access publishing have created a national preprint platform for India, to make results from the country’s researchers available immediately at no cost to authors or readers.

IndiaRxiv opened for submissions on 15 August—the day of India’s annual celebration of national independence—with a promise to publish works in all Indian languages.

It is a collaboration between the community organisation Open Access India and the not-for-profit Center for Open Science, a technology organisation based in the United States. Like other preprint platforms, it will publish early versions of research papers that have not yet been peer reviewed.
