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.
