Welcome to the Deep Science Manuscript submission system.
Below is a list of standard sections during the submission process. Fields that require an entry are marked with an asterisk (*)，when you upload your manuscript.
To learn more about the scope of Deep Science and its review process, consult our publishing ethics and open peer review guide.
You may return to this page at any time during the submission process by using the "Submission Guide" link.
When you are ready to begin your submission, click the "Begin Submission" button at the bottom of this page.
All metadata details (manuscript title, author list, abstract, etc.) uploaded by the author will be published on the final preprint article webpage, along with the actual article PDF file.
Deep Science is an online archive and distribution service for preprints in various science disciplines.
An article may be submitted to Deep Science in draft or final form, if it concerns a relevant scientific field, the content is unpublished at the time of submission, and all its authors have consented to its submission. Authors wishing to submit manuscripts must first register on the site. There is no fee for registration or article submission.
Deep Science is a source of research information and should not be used to publish other content such as news, product advertisements, or policy statements. All articles uploaded to Deep Science undergo basic screening process for offensive and/or non-scientific content and for material that might pose a health or biosecurity risk. Articles are not peer-reviewed before being posted online. No endorsement of their methods, assumptions, conclusions or scientific quality by Deep Technology is implied by their appearance in Deep Science.
Articles are not typeset before being posted online. Author’s manuscripts are uploaded as PDF files.
Articles publish in Deep Science in the order in which they are received. They are retrievable via the web interface at no charge.
The simplest way to submit a manuscript to Deep Science is to upload a single PDF including the text and any figures/tables. Supplementary data should be created in a separate file or files.
LaTeX files should be converted to PDF prior to submission; they may also be uploaded as Supplementary Material.
Authors are free to include Supplementary Material such as additional tables and MPEG files. Large data sets, however, should instead be deposited in the appropriate community database.
Authors should abide by all relevant community guidelines for use and acknowledgment of data resources, obtaining permission where required and citing the appropriate laboratory, website, and accession numbers.
After an article is submitted to Deep Science, it is citable and therefore cannot be removed. The copyright remains with the author, who is asked to select from several distribution/reuse options under which to make the article available (CC BY, CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-ND, CC0, or no reuse). By publishing on Deep Science, authors explicitly consent to text mining of their work (e.g., by search engines or researchers).
Deep Science reserves the right to identify and remove any articles that contain plagiarized material or describe experimental work that is not performed in accordance with the relevant ethical standards for research using animals or human subjects.
Preprints published on Deep Science can be cited using their digital object identifier (DOI). Revised versions of manuscripts will have a new DOI assigned to the previous version.
Example: Author AN, Author BT. 2013. My article title. Deep Science doi: 10.55415/deep-2022-0001
Authors are free to submit a revised version of an article at any time (prior to acceptance for publication) by clicking on ‘submit a revision’ within the Author Area. The new version will use a different DOI as the original submission. Supplementary data, if any, must accompany each version of a paper; authors have the option of selecting previously posted supplementary files and/or including revised supplementary files with each article revision.
Most research journals allow posting on preprint servers such as Deep Science prior to publication. A list of journal policies can be found on Wikipedia and SHERPA/RoMEO. Authors should consult these lists and other sources of information before submitting to Deep Science.
