PubMed Commons 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.

Here is my first comment in PubmedCommons for my article \pmid 9682060 : "My code has moved to github"

You should also see the discussion at Retraction Watch about this:

http://retractionwatch.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/pubmed-now-allows-comments-on-abstracts-but-only-by-a-select-few/

EDIT (after trying it out): I commented on the Biostar paper to kick the tires. I wondered what would happen if you invited an author--I thought that might be interesting to try and potentially useful (also a spam risk). But you have to know the author's email apparently.

I'm a little surprised that Retraction Watch are essentially calling for an anything-goes comment policy. PubMed is not YouTube.

People have found this post helpful: Joining PubMed Commons: A Step-by-step Guide. If you want an invite and have a PubMed article I'm happy to try to give you an invite. Need one of your Pubmed IDs + the email for your MyNCBI account and I will do that invite as shown in the graphic here. That seemed to work for someone I invited.

Are they importing comments from other sources? The comments on the DESeq paper dates from June: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20979621/

The PLoS journals also have this option, though so far seems to get very little use.

This is also the first thing that came into my mind when I saw this post
