Methods- Generating Report on the Structure and Quality on the Article

In this section, we show you how to use  Preprint Healthcheck tool to create the health check report of your manuscript. 

This tool not only generates the report but also reduces times.

Let us go ahead and do this. 

Step #1: Opening the Preprint Healthcheck Tool

The first thing you need to do is open the Scholarcy’s Preprint Healthcheck  Application Programming Interface (API) on your desktop browser. Once you open the tool, you will be taken to the home page:

There are two methods you can use to generate the health check report on your manuscript:

  1. Using the preprint’s public URL (Uniform Resource Locator)
  2. Uploading the PDF file directly from your local machine

Step #2: Generate Healthcheck Report  

In this post, we use the following preprint URL ( We tried it on a new arXiv preprint (PDF) ):

After inserting the above preprint URL, you just hit the Generate Report” button.

You should see like this interface:

The tool extracts the below items as soon as you upload the pdf file:

  • Abstract
  • Study Subjects
  • Data Analysis
  • Ethical Compliance
  • Figures and Tables
  • Funding
  • Document Structure
  • Keywords
  • References etc.

In order to obtain the details about the references, we just click on the “References” section. Once you click on the references, you see the details:

You can also check for retraction whether your references in your manuscript are supportive or not.

In my previous article I already discussed and demonstrated on how to check the reliability of your references using Reference Check tool.

In order to access the free open access full-text using Unpaywall, you click on the open lockpad. I wrote an article on how to find free legal full-text open access journal articles.

Alternative Method-  Using PDF Version of the Article 

In this method, you can upload a pdf file of your manuscript to generate the healthcheck report card. Once you choose the file and hit the “Generate Report” button,  the tool generates the health check report along with the above items.
