If you want to learn more about the June 10 #ShutDownSTEM movement, there is more information here and here.

SDS: Preprints in Conversation
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance and impact of preprint servers like never before. But are these tools right for you? What do preprints mean for exposure? Trainees? Research quality?
Join us on Tuesday, July 21 at 1 PM EDT for a seminar with our own Joel Boerckel, Ph.D.: “Preprints in Conversation: An Argument for Preprint Adoption by Researchers in the IRM.” Joel will be discussing his personal experience with preprints and sharing why he thinks this tool is ripe for widespread use. Come learn more about this science communication strategy and discuss the state of preprints in 2020, whether you have used them or not.
Hope to see you there!
