Annotation Call

Curating Preprints in bioRxiv

  • Good discussion on the pros/cons of curating preprints, especially those found in bioRxiv
  • Although most groups would not choose to do this right now, we concluded that if a curator feels strongly that there is valuable information in a bioRxiv preprint, they may curate that paper
  • Proposed SOP (to be presented on manager's call for final approval):
    • Curator should determine that the preprint is the only published source of the data and that the data is of high quality
    • GO annotations can be made as usual, citing the unique accession of the preprint
    • If and when the preprint appears as a peer-reviewed publication, the curator needs to review the paper again, perhaps in collaboration with the authors, to make certain that the annotations are still correct
    • Existing and/or new annotations from the paper will then be updated to cite the accession for the peer-reviewed paper
