Most of you probably know the Google Scholar preprint bug: if you upload a preprint and then you publish your work on a journal, GS won't find it.

Let's suppose that I already published my journal paper and this paper has been detected by Scholar. Now, if I upload the preprint to get more visibility (this is allowed by the journal), may I still incurr in the bug? I.e., the journal paper may disappear from my scholar profile?

Does anyone have experience of this kind of situation?

I tried once with another paper and the bug did not happened, but still, I'm worried about the possibility.

Thank you in advance for your replies.

    Google Scholar preprint bug is there any evidence of this? – user2768 Feb 14 at 11:23

    Google Scholar indexes multiple versions of manuscripts, you can click All X versions (in search results) to see those versions, which can include preprints (from all sources), as well as any published papers/articles. So, I don't believe the bug exists, nor do I anticipate the problem to which you elude. – user2768 Feb 14 at 11:27
