I like PubPeer, which has a nice firefox extension and is well integrated with pubmed's comments system. It seems to have an active community, and some anonymous person is going through a lot of papers published in high impact journals and highlighting possible artifacts.

Thumbs up for PubPeer, a great place to start holy wars like this one https://pubpeer.com/publications/85C712D040528F6263E91EC7EB23F5 :)

Actually, I haven't seen lots of discussion on bioinformatics papers there, the folk seems to be mostly concerned with Western Blots generated via extensive use of Photoshop. As far as I remember some comments from there lead to corrections/retractions in high-impact papers.

Accepted. PubPeer has lasted the test of time.

The PLoS Journals let you comment on the articles directly, which I suppose is like reviewing an amazon product on its page.

PLoS journals also gather trackbacks and pingbacks, so blog comment from around the web is aggregated on each article too.

Several journals accept comments and I expect others to follow. I think Nature publishing is thinking about this. What will be missing then is some way to aggregate across the different sites. I hope the publishers can agree on simple standard ways for people to access comments and ratings of papers.

Well, http://www.connotea.org and http://www.citeulike.org both allow you to add a comment to any article/site . I also found http://acawiki.org/Home in my bookmarks:

AcaWiki is like a "Wikipedia for academic research" designed to increase the impact of scholars, students, and bloggers by enabling them to share summaries and discuss academic papers online

Google side wiki ? http://www.google.com/sidewiki/intl/en/index.html

and the ooooooold Annotea http://www.w3.org/2001/Annotea (only works for GET urls...)

Google side wiki has been discontinued

so can see all comments about an article in these or just one person's comment at a time?

ADD REPLYlink written 10.2 years ago by Jeremy Leipzig19k

in connotea you can get all the bookmarks for a given article. e.g: http://www.connotea.org/article/1e67ed7e61c089a845da109b968900f8

Alternatively, you can blog about the article. Websites like ResearchBlogging, Chemical blogspace and NatureBlogs, and the PLoS journals will index those blogs and link the comments to the papers. Using userscripts you can have those comments show up on the journal website when you use your GreaseMonkey-enabled browser (e.g. Firefox or Chrome) to look at the article website (see doi:10.1186/1471-2105-8-487).

Thanks for these links Egon, I hadn't used ResearchBlogging before.

All of the BioMed Central journals accept comments on journal articles, so that is currently 207 journals.

They have a policy on comments which you can access here :-

bioRxiv allows comments but since it's a preprint server, I guess the papers haven't reached peer-review..

I've had this site going for several years but update only on occasion. It's a pet project with no users but it has some legs.

Registration is disabled right now, so don't try. I'll update this post or reply when it's up.

It has some more work to go but I hope to push it to git in a week or two.

(Yes, I haven't updated the front page for 2+ years, it's crappy javascript and homegrown Python, but it was a work of love).
