Quotes: .. the major factor for ensuring quality is that the reputation of the investigator is at stake, and achieving a good reputation within the community is a primary motivating factor for scientists. Indeed, a preprint submission is immediately visible to the entire community whereas a journal submission is seen confidentially by only a couple of referees. .. Scientists take pride in their work and will be guided by their own internal standards in deciding when their work is ready to be released to the community. .. the paper can receive input (as this article has) from more than two or three referees, which could help authors correct flawed experiments/statements and help produce a better final product published in the journal. .. Journals then may be incentivized to look more toward quality than speed and seek to publish the definitive work that will stand the test of time ..

Quote: Most physics papers published in Nature journals begin as preprints—manuscripts that scientists disseminate to their peers, typically via a preprint server, before they have been formally peer reviewed. This reflects the status quo in physics and computer science, where preprints have been widely used for decades, even before the popular preprint server arXiv was created in 1991. Preprints have yet to be embraced, however, by most biologists. ... we welcome the posting of preprints on accepted preprint servers such as bioRxiv and arXiv, or on an author’s website or blog. - NATURE METHODS| VOL.13 NO.4 |APRIL 2016 |277
