PubPeer Pressure

November 3, 2014 By Colleen Flaherty

Restaurants, movies, plumbers -- the internet can be used to crowdsource reviews of just about anything. So why not scientific research? That’s the idea behind PubPeer, an online platform to discuss research that’s already been published in other journals -- kind of like a Yelp for Ph.D.s. It’s part of a growing post-publication peer review movement that seeks to democratize the traditional peer review process, which many scientists say is old-fashioned and doesn’t always ensure quality. Some research suggests the same.

What about Research that is not reproducible, or can be contradicted by enough peer-review evidence?
