Scientific publications: Readers reviews and comments

  1. Dec 5, 2011 #1

    I you plan to buy a book on Amazon, you can read comments by previous readers.
    These comments, together with the book preview, are quite useful.
    At the least, reviews could decrease the risk of a wrong purchase or of a waste of time.

    Wouldn't it be useful to also have the opportunity to read comments by previous readers?

    I would be interrested to know if there have already been such initiatives on the web,
    and what you would think about that?

    The Faculty of 1000 is one such initiative. Several thousand researchers and clinicians from around the world review published papers and rank them.
