It provides support that preprint studies can provide robust results before peer review is completed, but we should be more cautious about preprints with small samples and biases. May seem obvious, but it’s important to verify preprints are useful.

A lot of people will write off all preprints. But in emergency situations, the peer review wait time can delay policy and research, so preprints are an important source of research results.
