The ArXiv preprint server — physicists’ favourite place for early circulation of their results — has branched out into biology. Last month, the server’s managers created q-bio, an archive for quantitative biology. The move reflects the fact that ArXiv’s traditional constituency of physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists is increasingly working on biological problems, says its founder Paul Ginsparg of Cornell University in New York state. The proportion of biology papers on ArXiv has…

arXiv E‐prints and the journal of record: An analysis of roles and relationships
TLDR
It is shown that the proportion of WoS papers found on arXiv varies across the specialties of physics and mathematics, and that only a few specialties make extensive use of the repository.
Electronic Scientific Information, Open Access, and Editorial Peer Review
TLDR
Developments of particular importance to editorial peer review include the impact of electronic journals on scholarly publishing in general, pre-print repositories, open access journals, and access to unpublished data.
