[Irtalk] The issue with Pre/post prints

Dear Rose

I would suggest that each new version be uploaded as a new item. Chances
are that the original pre-print might have been cited already. Therefore it
cannot be replaced/withdrawn. Keeping all together as part of one item
might work, but then the item will end up with more than one title
etc.  And you will have to indicate the versions as part of the description
field (next to the full text file).

Since a pre-print has not gone through the peer-review process yet, we do
not upload pre-prints at all, but rather wait for the post-print.

Can you maybe share an example of a pre-print available through your

Any other suggestions out there?

Kind regards

I would like to start a discussion on the IRTalk on the use of Pre prints
on repositories. We have discovered that after publication, the titles and
other information often changes completely. How does other repository
managers go about addressing this issue on their repositories? It has
become a recent issue in our institution.
