What is RESEARCHERS.ONE

A very natural question is: what is RESEARCHERS.ONE?  This question is addressed in detail in The RESEARCHERS.ONE Mission but it would be helpful to address a more specific question as it relates to what the platform can offer an individual author.  The co-founders weigh in on this in the following YouTube video.

An even more specific question that's come up is whether RESEARCHERS.ONE is a journal or a pre-print repository.  In short, it's both a journal and a pre-print repository and also neither.  The co-founders address this question in the following YouTube video.
