Pubmed starts Pilot of Pubmed Commons (Commenting- and peer review system)

Pubmed has just launched „Pubmed Commons„, which is…

a system that enables researchers to share their opinions about scientific publications. Researchers can comment on any publication indexed by PubMed, and read the comments of others. PubMed Commons is a forum for open and constructive criticism and discussion of scientific issues. It will thrive with high quality interchange from the scientific community. PubMed Commons is currently in a closed pilot testing phase, which means that only invited participants can add and view comments in PubMed.

And from our point of view, the approach looks very promising: Opening the peer review process and using processes that have been proven for years now in the internet community (e.g. @Wikipedia) has the potential to really improve the quality and broadness of the peer review process. And, by the way, it might shake up the scene of medical journals and democratize participation as soon as it opens to a broader audience.

This might really be a groundbreaking development.
