About the newsletter
Rxivist indexes and sorts metadata from bioRxiv. Rxivist allows users to sort preprints based on Twitter activity or download metrics across a number of categories and timeframes—our weekly newsletter brings a slice of this information to your email inbox every Friday: We'll send the top 20 most tweeted bioRxiv preprints of the week, with titles, snippets of abstracts, and links to read more.
The newsletter (and its formatting) is still a work in progress, so these specs may change. The main goal, however, will not: to help you find the most discussed preprints in the life sciences. You can view previous newsletters to get an idea of what's on the way. If you think it's for you, sign up for free below or in the sidebar:
