PsyArXiv preprints are now discoverable in Europe PMC alongside peer-reviewed research
PsyArXiv’s collection of more than 14,000 psychological sciences preprints has now been indexed in Europe PMC, an open science platform that enables access to a worldwide collection of 38.6 million life science publications and preprints.
“Indexing PsyArXiv in Europe PMC means that psychological preprints will now be more discoverable than ever before. PsyArXiv users will benefit from the increased audience for their work.” – Katherine S. Corker, executive officer for the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science, and Associate Professor at Grand Valley State University.
Since 2018, Europe PMC has indexed nearly 290,000 preprints alongside its collection of peer-reviewed journal articles. Similar to other records in Europe PMC, these preprints are linked to underlying data, journal published articles, preprint citations, comments or open peer reviews, and can be claimed to ORCID.
“We’ve seen an impressive rise in preprint popularity in the life sciences in the last few years – it’s a great way to rapidly communicate research results. […] We hope that including preprint abstracts into Europe PMC search results, will not only enhance their discoverability, but also provide a community platform to explore some open questions.” – Johanna McEntyre, the Associate Director of EMBL-EBI Services and Principal Investigator for Europe PMC.

PsyArXiv (psychology archive) is designed to facilitate rapid dissemination of psychological research. PsyArXiv is a creation of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS) and is hosted by the Center for Open Science (COS).
PsyArXiv allows scholars to post documents such as working papers, unpublished work, and articles under review (preprints), making them accessible to other researchers and to the public at no cost. Users can also upload revisions of their posted document and supplemental documents such as appendices.
