Some scientists are concerned about possible negative repercussions of preprinting, like being scooped or being disqualified from submitting to a journal of choice, and others feel that preprinting may have no effect at all. However, many biologists have had very positive experiences with preprinting – including receiving helpful feedback, invitations to submit to journals, jobs, and grants as a result. We’ve collected some of their stories here.
