Pre-prints are considered a legitimate way to make research available as quickly as possible. There are several benefits of preprints:
- Make your work publicly available as soon as possible.
- Get feedback from peers.
- Make your work citable as early as possible.
Most major publishers accept pre-prints for publication including Spring and Elsevier:
