Preprints with The Lancet

Preprints with The Lancet is a collaboration between The Lancet and SSRN. Preprints with The Lancet is part of SSRN's First Look, a place where journals and other research experts identify content of interest prior to publication. These preprint papers are not peer-reviewed.  

 

 

Is Preprints with The Lancet a journal?

No. It is a platform for sharing early stage non-peer-reviewed research within the medical and research community.

 

 

I submitted my paper to a Lancet journal. Why is my paper now posted on SSRN?

At submission stage to all Lancet journals, authors are asked whether they would like their paper to be posted to a dedicated area of SSRN called Preprints with The Lancet. If the corresponding author confirms that all authors agree and opts in, your paper will be eligible to appear on the SSRN website.

 

 

I opted in to include my paper on SSRN's preprint platform. Why did I get an email from SSRN asking for additional information?

To be eligible for posting on SSRN, it is necessary to include all the required information (ethics approval, declaration of interests, funding statement, and prospective registration for randomized controlled trials). If the required information was not answered and/or included in the full-text PDF, SSRN will give you the opportunity to update your PDF with this information.

 

 

SSRN asked for additional information. What happens if I do not provide it?

To be eligible for posting on SSRN, it is necessary to include all the required information (ethics approval, declaration of interests, funding statement, and prospective registration for randomized controlled trials). Your paper will be removed from Preprints with The Lancet until this information has been provided.

 

 

My paper was rejected by a Lancet journal. Will keeping my paper on SSRN's Preprints with The Lancet hurt my chances of acceptance if I submit to another journal?

For most academic journals, posting preprints on SSRN is not considered prior publication. However, some journals may have a different view, so we recommend authors review publishers’ policies regarding posted preprints.

 

 

My paper was rejected by a Lancet journal. How do it get my preprint taken down from SSRN?

If you want to remove your paper from SSRN, send an email to The Lancet at preprints@lancet.com.

 

 

My paper was accepted by SSRN for Preprints with The Lancet. Does that mean my paper was accepted to a Lancet journal as well?

No. Posting a preprint to SSRN is entirely independent from the decision made by any Lancet journals.

 

 

Are these papers Lancet publications?

No, they are not. Papers available via SSRN should not be considered published or necessarily under review with the Lancet family of journals.

 

 

I found some inaccuracies in my paper posted on SSRN. How do I update the PDF?

Email your updated PDF to The Lancet at preprints@lancet.com. Updates will be made at the discretion of The Lancet.
