|Tennant J, Gatto L, Logan C (2018) Preprints help journalism, not hinder it. Nature 560:553.|
Abstract: In suggesting that preprints could distort the public’s understanding of science, Tom Sheldon perpetuates the fallacy that peer review is a guarantee of validity (Nature 559, 445; 2018). There are countless examples to the contrary (see, for instance, A. Margalida and M. À. Colomer PeerJ 4, e1670; 2016).
