agriRxiv (pronounced ‘agri-archive’) is a free, open access source of unpublished preprints across the agricultural sciences, hosted by CABI. Preprints are drafts of research articles that authors share before submitting their final version to a journal for formal peer-review.

Posting a preprint on agriRxiv is a helpful way to get feedback about a paper before the final submission to a journal. And if you need help getting your paper ready for submission, remember to check out the CABI Author Services, which help authors with editing, translating and sharing academic papers.
