Terms and Conditions


acamedics is a free online research project allocation, archive and distribution for unpublished preprints (posters, abstracts and articles) in the life sciences. By presenting posters at our symposiums and posting preprint abstracts, articles and posters on our website, authors are able to make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and receive feedback on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to journals.

Articles are not peer-reviewed, edited, or typeset before being posted online. However, all articles undergo a basic screening process for offensive and/or non-scientific content. No endorsement of an article’s methods, assumptions, conclusions, or scientific quality is implied by its appearance on our website. An abstract or an article may be posted prior to, or concurrently with, submission to a journal but should not be posted if it has already been published.

Authors may submit a revised version of an article to acamedics at any time and can update their record with a link to a version of an article that has been published in a journal. Once posted on acamedics, poster and articles may be citable and therefore cannot be removed unless upon explicit instruction from the authors.



Authors retain copyright and intellectual property of their work. By posting on acamedics.org, authors explicitly consent to text mining of their work (e.g., by search engines or researchers).

acamedics reserves the right to identify and remove any articles that contain plagiarised material or describe experimental work that is not performed in accordance with the relevant ethical standards for research using animals or human subjects.



Readers may soon add public comments to articles on acamedics.org. Comments will be moderated to ensure they conform to the standards of normal professional discourse. Readers are also free to contact authors directly.


Journal Preprint Policies

Many research journals, including Nature journals, ScienceeLife, and all PLOS journals allow posting on preprint websites such as acamedics prior to publication. A few journals will not consider articles that have been posted to preprint servers. A list of journal policies can be found on Wikipedia and SHERPA/RoMEO. Authors should consult these lists and other sources of information before posting on acamedics.
