PubMed Now Includes comments

PubMed has launched PubMed Commons, which allows registered researchers who has published an article listed in PubMed to comment on any PubMed abstracts.

To quote the website, 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.

The testing phase will allow authors linked to intra- and extra-mural programs at NIH or to the Wellcome Trust to register and comment.
