Policy on Preprint Publication
Emerging Infectious Diseases publishes only original, previously unpublished materials, but will consider for publication manuscripts that have been posted on reputable, not-for-profit preprint servers (e.g., bioRxiv). Consideration is on a case-by-case basis. During submission, authors must indicate on the journal’s Author Checklist (41 KB, 1 page) and in their submission letter where their article has been posted. They must also agree, if the article is accepted, to update the archived preprint with their article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a link to the version of the article published in EID, and a complete citation upon publication in EID.
Authors may contact EID at email@example.com to discuss whether a preprint posting will affect the eligibility of the article for publication in EID.
