What are the elements of peer review 2.0?

The whiteboard from our discussion of what should be part of our ideal peer-review system:

  • continuous
  • community rejection—the “quack” button
  • “reputation” for reviewing quality, meta-reviews
  • a review is a citable object (that therefore can be peer-reviewed)
  • scoring:
    • different levels of depth: review (continuum & content) vs. reader score
    • commenting: no score assigned
  • anchored reviewing (line #/annotation): can review pieces of an article
  • notification after revision, old versions marked as deprecated
  • versioning: what is the user interface to prevent confusion about the timeline?
  • private review possible
  • >comment as real person or pseudonym?
  • comments tied to a single account
  • conflict of interest for scored reviews
