Preprint and Postprint Policy

Pipeline Sciecne and Technology (PST) allows and encourages authors to deposit both their pre- and post-prints or publisher's version/PDF in Open-Access institutional archives, repositories, or personal websites. The primary benefit of pre- and post-print self-archiving is reaching a larger audience which enhances the visibility and impact of your research.

Authors should disclose details of preprint posting, including DOI and licensing terms, upon submission of the manuscript or at any other point during consideration at PST journal. Once the preprint is published, it is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the preprint record is updated with a publication reference, including the DOI and a URL link to the published version of the article on the journal website.
