Challenges in Citing Preprints and How to Tackle Them

If youve been wondering how to cite preprints, youre not alone!

The COVID-19-induced explosion of preprints has produced a corresponding explosion of citations to preprints. In the process of working with publishers to handle these citations in their publication workflows, our Development team discovered a series of editorial and production challenges around citing preprint metadata and preprint citations. In this talk from the NISO Preprints conference in April 2021, Bruce Rosenblum gives an overview of these challenges, and of some best practices and potential solutionsall illustrated with real-world examples.
