Dear Colleagues,

BioRxiv is the new home to pre-print publications for all disciplines
involved in clinical drug development and therapeutics! Check out the new D=
rug
Development and Clinical Therapeutics
<http://connect.biorxiv.org/relate/content/52> (#ddct) channel on the
well-know BioRxiv <http://biorxiv.org/> pre-print site (channels are listed
in a menu on the upper right side of the main page).

Pre-prints provide rapid dissemination of knowledge with an opportunity to
receive dynamic and continuous feedback from multiple reviewers that can
improve the quality of your publication.
We believe pre-prints are an essential but missing link in our rapidly
growing field of quantitative clinical sciences that support clinical drug
development and therapeutic management.

You can learn more about pre-prints
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zMgY8Dx9co> and Biorxiv
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwAMtT3ZIpg> by watching the videos in t=
he
links.
Submitting your manuscripts to biorxiv’s #ddct channel requires 2 s=
imple
steps:

   1. Submit your manuscript through the regular submission route of
   biorxiv that can be found here <http://biorxiv.org/submit-a-manuscript>
   2. Add a #ddct Tag to the end of your manuscript abstract to get listed
   in the Drug Development and Clinical Therapeutics channel
   <http://connect.biorxiv.org/relate/content/52>. In addition to this tag,
   you can include multiple other tags that are listed here
   <http://connect.biorxiv.org/relate/content/52> in the “Instructi=
ons for
   authors”

Your manuscript will be sent out to moderators who will oversee the content
and approve the pre-print. The moderator’s job is primarily to ensu=
re that
the manuscript is a rigorous scientific work in an area consistent with the
scope of the #ddct channel. Review of the details of the manuscript is left
to the community who have access to a discussion board for each manuscript.
This will facilitate an open peer review process designed to help authors
improve their work before submitting to a peer-reviewed journal. A revised
and refined manuscript after open peer-review can still be submitted to any
standard journal of your choice.

We are seeking moderators from different time zones around the world, at
least 1-2 from each continent. Moderators will serve for a one year term at
the end of which can nominate other colleagues to serve. If you would like
to nominate yourself or a colleague, please send an email to the contacts
listed below with the subject line - “Intent to moderate #ddct bior=
xiv”.

Please send all questions and comments to -
Vijay Ivaturi - ivijaydeep_at_gmail.com
Kyle Baron - kyleb_at_metrumrg.com
Or join the discussion in the Biorxiv category thread on
