AltInst: Separating Peer Review from Publication

From: Robin Hanson <>
Date: Fri Jul 10 1998 - 10:24:45 PDT

The July 3 '98 Science on p.7 mentions a proposal by several
university provosts to "separate a paper's peer review from its
publication, so that once `certified' the work could be published
in a spearate step - even on one's own web server. ... The proposal
cals for learned societies to form review panels that would certify
a paper as publishable ... such certifications and old-fashioned
publications would carry the same imprimatur in tenure decisions"
