  "description": "<p>These data and chart present an approximate&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.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Version 1.0 of these data&nbsp;represents data from January 2007 until May 31, 2019 for preprint servers: arXiv q-bio, Nature Precedings, F1000Research*, PeerJ Preprints*, bioRxiv**, Winnower*,&nbsp;<a href=\"http://preprints.org\">preprints.org</a>, Wellcome Open Research*.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>* 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.</p>\n\n<p>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 &#39;Preprints_per_month_direct_2019-01to05.csv&#39;.&nbsp;Until December 2018, monthly preprint submissions data are based on those contributed by Jordan Anaya (ORCID: <a href=\"https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6166-4113\">https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6166-4113</a>) for PrePubMed, source:&nbsp;<a href=\"https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OmnesRes/prepub/master/analyses/preprint_data.txt\">https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OmnesRes/prepub/master/analyses/preprint_data.txt</a>; Github repository:&nbsp;<a href=\"https://github.com/OmnesRes/prepub\">https://github.com/OmnesRes/prepub</a>; website: <a href=\"http://www.prepubmed.org/\">http://www.prepubmed.org</a>).
