    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The preprints landscape is evolving rapidly, and the full impact of sharing articles in pre-review form remains to be seen. Our interest in Open Access and Open Scholarship led us to issue an initial report on &amp;lsquo;&lt;a href=""&gt;The evolving preprint landscape&amp;#39;&lt;/a&gt; in 2018, and we are now able to share the first output of our next stage of work in this exciting field &amp;ndash; a slide deck detailing our findings on the practices, drivers and impediments in the use of preprints.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Preprints have become more widespread in a number of disciplines over the last few years, partly to counter the slow pace of the traditional publishing process and partly to allow authors to reach a broader audience. Knowledge Exchange, in collaboration with &lt;a href=""&gt;Research Consulting&lt;/a&gt;, has been exploring stakeholder views on this topic, focusing in particular on:&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;the use of preprints by researchers;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;the core benefits of using preprints for researchers;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;the incentives and disincentives of using preprints for researchers;&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;the attitudes towards preprints by institutions and funders; and&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;the values, strategies and aims of preprint service providers.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;In this context, we interviewed 38 stakeholders, including researchers, research performing organisations, research funding organisations and preprint service providers, and reviewed over 60 literature sources.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;These slides are an interim output of the research led by our Task &amp;amp; Finish group on preprints. We will continue to investigate the area until September 2019, when we plan to release a more detailed report unpicking the evidence gathered.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
