Abstract: A geneticist's decision not to publish his finalized preprint in a journal gets support from scientists online. Preprint papers posted on servers such as arXiv and bioRxiv are designed to get research results out for discussion before they are formally peer reviewed and published in journals. But for some scientists, the term is now a misnomer — their preprint papers will never be submitted for formal publication.
