"On the Origin of Nonequivalent States: How We Can Talk about Preprints"

Cameron Neylon et al. have self-archived "On the Origin of Nonequivalent States: How We Can Talk about Preprints."

Here's an excerpt:

In this paper, we argue that these discussions often conflate two separate issues, the history of the manuscript and the status granted it by different communities. In this paper, we propose a new model that distinguishes the characteristics of the object, its "state", from the subjective "standing" granted to it by different communities. This provides a way to discuss the difference in practices between communities, which will deliver more productive conversations and facilitate negotiation on how to collectively improve the process of scholarly communications not only for preprints but other forms of scholarly contributions.
