ASAPbio is a researcher-driven initiative to promote the productive use of preprints in the life sciences. We're doing this by advocating for 1) preprint-friendly policies at journals, institutions, and funding agencies, 2) enabling infrastructure and services, and 3) a cultural change in our view of preprints as well-respected research objects in the life sciences.

I'm also president of the BoD of Future of Research, which aims to involve junior scientists in promoting systemic changes to the research enterprise.

I'd love to talk to you about preprints, getting early career researchers involved in policy discussions, the structure of the research workforce, nonprofit governance, and licensing of research data and manuscripts.
