    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;These data and chart present an approximate&amp;nbsp;calculation of the proportion of preprints in biology when compared to publications in PubMed, based on monthly figures and incorporating monthly preprint submissions (or counts) across a selection of servers relevant to biology.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Version 1.0 of these data&amp;nbsp;represents data from January 2007 until May 31, 2019 for preprint servers: arXiv q-bio, Nature Precedings, F1000Research*, PeerJ Preprints*, bioRxiv**, Winnower*,&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="http://preprints.org"&gt;preprints.org&lt;/a&gt;, Wellcome Open Research*.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;* Counts may not be specific to biology preprints only; ** Counts may include all versions posted that month, so may be an overestimate for version 1 submissions.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;From January 2019, data has been gathered manually by the authors, as per the methods described in the .csv here, and is included here in &amp;#39;Preprints_per_month_direct_2019-01to05.csv&amp;#39;.&amp;nbsp;Until December 2018, monthly preprint submissions data are based on those contributed by Jordan Anaya (ORCID: &lt;a href="https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6166-4113"&gt;https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6166-4113&lt;/a&gt;) for PrePubMed, source:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OmnesRes/prepub/master/analyses/preprint_data.txt"&gt;https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OmnesRes/prepub/master/analyses/preprint_data.txt&lt;/a&gt;; Github repository:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://github.com/OmnesRes/prepub"&gt;https://github.com/OmnesRes/prepub&lt;/a&gt;; website: &lt;a href="http://www.prepubmed.org/"&gt;http://www.prepubmed.org&lt;/a&gt;).

&lt;p&gt;A live version of these data and the chart are available from this GSheet:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bkGEcfQcL0LpIanVqNHci1ZFY6oVNGz7IQbEugzkqkU/edit?usp=sharing"&gt;https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bkGEcfQcL0LpIanVqNHci1ZFY6oVNGz7IQbEugzkqkU/edit?usp=sharing&lt;/a&gt;. Between version updates here, please refer to this sheet for updated counts and method updates e.g.&amp;nbsp;to include more servers and ensure only version 1 submissions are counted.&lt;/p&gt;
