DailyDirt: Peer Reviewed Publications Are Everywhere

Peer reviewed publications have been under some additional scrutiny lately, as some of the practices of peer review aren’t quite as honest and reliable as they once might have been. Fortunately, there are some solutions that create alternatives to the peer review process that involve opening up the content for more reviewers to study, question and verify results. Having reliable information more widely available to the public sounds like it can’t go wrong, but it’s not easy to build a reputation on a small database of preprints. However, as more and more significant results come from unlikely people, the process of peer review will need to adapt and account for unexpected authors.
