About MitoFit Preprint Archives
- MitoFit Preprint Archives is a non-commercial, Open Access online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in mitochondrial physiology and bioenergetics. Before posting preprints on MitoFit Preprint Archives, authors should clarify if the journal intended for final publication accepts manuscripts published as preprints in MitoFit Preprint Arch. Today scientists may decide to submit manuscripts exclusively to journals which accept the concept of preprints.
- Conflict of interest / Disclaimer: MitoFit Preprint Archives is operated by the team of Oroboros Instruments. Guidance by the expanding Member and Scientific Advisory Boards adds to our mission of handling submissions on a non-commercial basis, independent of the use of any products related to commercial interests of scientific organizations and companies including Oroboros Instruments.
- The areas covered in MitoFit Preprint Archives include mitochondrial physiology, bioenergetics and ergodynamics. We recommend other preprint servers for manuscripts which do not belong to areas covered by MitoFit Preprint Arch.
- The formats are manuscripts in English including: original research, extended conference abstracts, methods, negative results, focal reviews with meta-analyses, and educational perspectives.
- The MitoFit Digital Object Identifier
- Once a DOI number has been assigned to a preprint including supplementary material, it cannot be changed, except for comments posted on the preprint page. An updated version can be posted, which will receive a new DOI number (v2; v3; ..), while the preprint version with the original DOI number will remain available and traceable. A preprint version can be removed only in exceptional cases, clarified on an individual basis.
- Open Access preprints (not peer-reviewed) are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original authors and source are credited. © remains with the authors, who have granted MitoFit an Open Access preprint licence in perpetuity.

We reserve the right to reject any inappropriate submissions"' (citation from arXiv).
- MitoFit Preprint Archives reserves the right to remove any articles that contain any material published without author consent, without an appropriate declaration of conflicts of interest, plagiarized material or describe experimental work that is not performed in accordance with the ethical standards for research using animals or human subjects.
- Once a manuscript has been accepted for publication in a scientific journal, MitoFit Preprint Archives accepts an updated new preprint version only in line with the policies of the specific scientific journal. As soon as a preprint has been published as a final manuscript on the website of a journal, the full citation is added to the preprint page in MitoFit Preprint Archives. It is the obligation of the corresponding author to immediately inform the editor(s) of MitoFit Preprint Archives on the full citation.
- It is not appropriate to copy text from articles published by the same group or by others. - Citron DT, Ginsparg P (2015) Patterns of text reuse in a scientific corpus. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 112:25-30. - »Bioblast link«
- References to methods papers should inform about original publications. It is inappropriate to refer in the methods section to a previous paper, where reference is made to another paper ..
- The authors are responsible for (1) the content, (2) the consent of all coauthors, (3) having performed the experimental work in accordance with the ethical standards for research particularly when using humans or animals, and (4) appropriate declarations of conflicts of interest.

- 2019-02-12: Three questions on preprints were sent to all coauthors (530) of the preprint Mitochondrial respiratory states and rates.
- 176 responded (2019-03-05):
- Summary: 38 coauthors were unfamiliar with the concept of preprints. Among those, 20 responded positively to publish in MitoFit Preprint Archives, whereas only 8 were against preprint publication. This indicates that our initiative is a positive contribution to help to make preprints more popular.
