Biology's Roiling Debate Over Publishing Research Early | WIRED

peter.suber's bookmarks 2017-07-08

Summary:

"Preprints could solve these issues by decoupling distribution of results from their certification via peer review. But publishers and some scientists worry preprints will only further dilute the research literature and endanger fields already struggling with reproducibility failures. And since preprints also threaten to dilute revenues at academic publishing houses, there’s more than just scientific integrity at stake."
