Wish list for science journals

Many of my numerate readers will have read the account by Rick Trebino of Georgia Tech of trials and tribulations of responding to an error in the public record of the peer-reviewed literature, and have ideas of their own on what they would like to see.

Record ideas for what you would like to see below. (I am on vacation on the Great Barrier Reef right now, so excuse the brevity, typing this from the resort.) My wish list is below.

1. Code and data allow replication
2. Reviewers can act as coaches, where appropriate
3. Journals dedicated entirely to review of others’ studies

  1. How about a repository for ex post facto commentary on published papers? Interested responders (amateur and professionally trained) could post criticisms and questions for the authors. The goal would be to collect ideas for improvements (and possibly corrections) and extending the research. Obviously “discussions” could get quite heated if it were like a blog, so one option is to require registration (for follow-up contact by the author, if desired). Another idea is moderation, but the cost of that may be high.

    • Yes, it would be useful to synthesise comments across various parts of the net, which is what Google does of course, but somehow more structured.
