Taking the public opinion event of “COVID-19” on foreign life science platforms--medRxiv and bioRxiv as an example, this paper analyzes the public opinion governance dilemma faced by preprint platforms. According to research, the social communication of scientific research personnel, the amplified propagation of mass media and the misleading propagation of ordinary people make preprint platforms trapped into the public opinion governance dilemma. It is needed for preprint platforms to integrate the platform powers, strengthen internal and external linkage, enhance subject consciousness, increase the threshold for propagation and undertake social responsibilities positively.
