A detailed observational study of the trends in biological sciences publishing, including analysis of time-to-publication, time-to-graduation, and the increasing minimum publication unit. The paper is interwoven with thoughtful analysis and perspective from the author. It includes an analysis of the pros / cons of preprinting manuscripts and makes a compelling case that "We may be approaching a breaking point in the publication process in the life sciences."
A must-read for all biology researchers. Don't skip the extensive Q & A addressing commonly asked questions about manuscript preprinting and publication reform.
