Preprints: confusion and distortion?

B - Sheldon T. Preprints could promote confusion and distortion. Nature 2018 July 24

Thousands of papers are submitted every month to the arXiv and bioRxiv platforms, which make manuscripts available before they have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication. According to the author, this holds substantial risks for the broader community of readers: weak works could get overblown in the media, while better works could be ignored. He believes that the scientific community should take measures to keep preprints from distorting the public's understanding of science.
