I am an undergraduate student. My friends and I found interesting results while applying game theory to biology. However, we have used only one datset and being undergrads can't get access to do experiments to get our own data. should we preprint anyway .Will retracting a paper from biorxiv hurt our future publication chances?
No. I would not expect any backlash from having a manuscript retracted at Biorxiv as it is not peer-reviewed in principle, anyway, and given you're not exposed for blatant fraud or other glaring questionable behaviour in the platform. Which would be so foolish nobody has done this yet. Furthermore, I do not think there are any mechanisms for retracting a paper from Biorxiv after publication. And this is important to bear in mind.
