Abstract

How quickly do preprints become published articles? What benefits are there for authors considering posting a preprint and for those people who determine journal preprint policy? That’s what we aim to learn in this study, by discovering a little more about the timing of submission of preprints and the relationship between submission and acceptance of manuscripts.

Keywords: preprints; publication speed

JEL Classification: C00
