New peer review platforms

25th Apr 2012

A quick post this week. I have been thinking of writing about the various companies that have sprung up offering peer review for scientific papers that are independent of journals. But I don’t need to: Jason Priem (@jasonpriem) has done it already.

He has posted a Google document with a list of these services, which anyone can edit. I have added two that I have come across: Sympoze and PaperRater, in addition to the ones already listed (PubUp, The Third Reviewer, Arxiliv, PaperCritic, Peerage of Science,TiNYARM,annotatr, Peer Evaluation and Faculty of 1000).

Jason has also included a list of publishing portals built around post-publication review, which currently includes just F1000 Research and WebMed Central.

Why not have a look at the document, and edit it if you know any more about these services or any similar ones?

Thanks for adding the two extra services! It’s amazing how many of these there are. It’s just a wait until someone gets this right and takes off…

Thanks for making the list, Jason! As I said, you’ve saved me a lot of work that I was intending to do at some point. But it would be even better if lots of other people contributed too.

Hello Anna and Jason,

Thanks for making the list Jason, and thanks Anna for helping to find it. I edited the section about our company Peerage of Science, hope it is ok.
