PCI (Peer Community In)

Definition: PCI is a non-profit organisation that creates communities of researchers who review and recommend unpublished preprints based upon high-quality peer review from at least two researchers in their field. These preprints are then assigned a DOI, similarly to a journal article. PCI was developed to establish a free, transparent and public scientific publication system based on the review and recommendation of preprints.
