First Principles of Preprints
Are preprints bad for science? Does preprinting bypass scrutiny, or invite it? What are the objective pros and cons?

Join a panel of PLOS experts for a discussion on the value and uses of preprinting in scientific publishing. We will address the following topics, separating fact from fiction, outlining where preprints fit in the publishing process, and answering questions from the audience.

Discussion points:
- Preprinting maximizes the availability of research for peer review by a diverse set of stakeholders
- Preprinting allows researchers to make scientific work available on their terms, unaffected by journal timelines or considerations of fit
- Reporting of research in preprints to the media and the public
- Various types of preprints and reasons for preprinting

PLOS Panellists:
Dan Morgan, Director, Communications & Community Relations
Dr Raffaella Bosurgi, Executive Editor, PLOS Medicine
Lindsay Morton, Senior Manager, Open Science Community Engagement
Dr Marcel LaFlamme, Open Research Manager
