There are ongoing controversies about the evaluation and dissemination of medical and scientific research.1- 3 Preprint servers offer researchers the opportunity to post manuscripts before publication in peer-reviewed journals and regardless of whether they have been submitted to journals for review. The global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has focused attention on the timely reporting and dissemination of research findings, and the respective roles of preprint servers and traditional peer-reviewed journals. We compared the effect and reach of studies about therapies for COVID-19 posted on the medRxiv preprint server, subsequent publications in medical journals of some of these studies, and journal articles that were not posted on either medRxiv or another preprint server.
