Richard Smith: "[...] I don't think that it makes any sense to continue with paper copies of research articles. Instead of the "quasi-legal" document that is the current scientific article, we should be moving to full data being available on the web together with the software that might have been used to manipulate the data, as well as multimedia presentations to back up the data. Research papers are primarily of interest to other researchers in the same area, and they usually don't need the introduction and certainly not the discussion, which mostly degenerates to hype anyway [...]."
'After years of research into peer review its downside is supported by lots of evidence, whereas there is little evidence of its benefits. "If it was a drug," says Drummond Rennie, deputy editor of JAMA, "it would never get onto the market."'
"In the new world I'm imagining, credit would come from the buzz from researchers and hits on the study. These hits can be disclosed in real time, unlike citations, which come years after studies are published."
