Preprints are research papers in the beginning stages of the publication process. These initial papers' authors are trying to get their research out to the world. Sometimes their presence on a 'preprint server' allow others to give early feedback so that the writers can edit and change needed processes before submitting to a research journal. Preprint servers are used primarily to set 'priority of discovery' of an author's findings. These servers are a great place to find 'current happening' research.
