The first articles have been published in the QuiViRR 2020 pilot volume.The aim of the pilot volume is twofold: first, it aims to showcase some of the alternative article formats that QuiViRR supports; second, it gives a head start to the journal rather than a long wait before the first submitted, reviewed and accepted articles are published in 2021.

The pilot consists of three articles, authored or co-authored by the editors of the journal. They have not been peer-reviewed.
