Apr 17, 2017 - Now indexed by Google Scholar


In exciting news over the weekend, engrXiv is now being indexed in Google Scholar! A big thank you to the team at the Center for Open Science for all their hard work in collaborating with the Google Scholar developers to bring this feature online. This is a great step in getting engrXiv preprints recognized in the scholarly community and for rapid dissemination of our work and its connection to the broader body of knowledge.

Check back here for more developments arriving in the coming months!

Feb 22, 2017 - Template now available


For authors looking to submit their preprint to engrXiv, we now have a template available to help you with formatting! This template is not required for submission to engrXiv but for situations where you don’t have any other formatting criteria, we think that this template provides a good place to start.

Some of the features of the template include:

  • ORCID researcher identifiers in the affiliation linked to your ORCID profile.
  • Author-year style in text citations to aid readability.
  • DOIs linked through oaDOI in the bibliography to help readers find an accessible version of your work.

You can make use of the template by forking it on Github or through our partnership with Overleaf where it is available as an Overleaf template.

Feb 3, 2017 - Recommended citation formatting now available


New updates have been pushed to the engrXiv preprint page. For all preprints on the service, a new section appears showing recommended citation formatting for the preprint. Also, as seen on the OSF Preprints roadmap document, this citation section will later be updated to include the ability to copy/paste the citation in other formats such as Bibtex.
