Peer Review and Science2.0

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presents on "Peer Review and Science2.0: blogs, wikis and social networking sites" as a guest lecturer for the “Peer Review Culture in Scholarly Publication and Grantmaking” course at Drexel University. The main thrust of the presentation is that peer review alone is not capable of coping with the increasing flood of scientific information being generated and shared. Arguments are made to show that providing sufficient proof for scientific findings does scale and...
