Q: Why should I bother to take the time to write a comment about an article on PubPeer? The goal of PubPeer is to foster a scientific environment where robust, high-quality research is valued, while providing a forum to discuss the problems of unreproducible, misleading, misconceived or fraudulent work. By commenting on publictions both positively and negatively we add another dimension to an article's "impact" that is independant of the name of the journal in which it was published. The comments on Pubpeer are seen by journals and other media outlets (pubpeer.com/press) and eventually influence future and past publications.




Q: I have seen a paper that claims fraudlent data. Can I report it on PubPeer? Although this is not the main aim of PubPeer, we believe that thse sort of comments need to be reported somewhere. So why not here. However, read ALL of this before making any claims of misconduct pubpeer.com/misconduct. This is a very serious issue for us and your comment will not appear on PubPeer unless it follows these rules.




Q: Are authors alerted when a comment is posted on their paper? Yes, as soon as new comments are submitted the authors of the paper are alerted of the comment.




Q: Can I choose other people to alert about a comment? Yes. On each publication page there is a share icon which one can use to enter email addresses and the system will alert those addresses to the comment on that page.




Q: Can I create more than one account? No.




Q: I am not a first or corresponding author, can I create an account? No unfortunately not. However, you can of course view all existing comments and submit new comments without logging in. However, be aware that unlike when logged in, these submitted comments will be screened for content/spam before being posted on the site.




Q:Why hasn't my submitted comment appeared on the site? Be patient. Depending on the quantity of submitted comments it can take up to a week for "the system" to screen these comments. Comments are screened for content and spam. Only comments that discuss directly the data of the paper are allowed: If your comment is a personal attack, rumor, or compliment it will never appear (log in if you want to write a compliment... we're trying to prevent some authors from complimenting themselves). You can always contact us on the contact page if you would like an update.




Q: I am a co-first author in the second author position of a publication, can I create an account using this publication? No, not at the moment. Please select another publication where you appear as either the first or last author.




Q: I am a first or corresponding author, but my publication is in the advanced publication or epub stage, can I use this paper to create an account? Yes. Send us the DOI of the paper so we can enter it into our database.




Q: Why are comments anonymous? Blind peer review has been employed by most major scientific publications in order to allow reviewers the ability to critically assess the work of their peers without fear of retaliations. We believe this to generally be a good system and would like to encourage it's usage on PubPeer. However, we recognize that there are some situations in which a commenter might feel compelled to reveal his/her identity (e.g. if they are an author of the publication and would like to explain how experiments were conducted) and we have allowed commenters to reveal their identity on an article-by-article basis.




Q: What sort of comments are allowed/prohibited? All scientific discussion relevant to a given publication is encouraged. The site will not tolerate any comments about the scientists themselves. To reference other papers, users can use quoted references, pubmed IDs, or links to other PubPeer comments.

问:什么样的评论是允许/禁止吗?所有的科学讨论相关给定鼓励出版。该网站对科学家本身不会容忍任何评论。引用其他文件,用户可以使用引用引用,pubmed id,或者链接到其他PubPeer评论。



Q: Who are the creators and what is the motivation behind this site? PubPeer started from the lack of post-publication peer discussion on journal websites. Thus was born an idea for a website where open peer review was not intimidating to users, while maintaing the rigor and anonymity of the closed review process currently used by the major journals. The site has been put together by a diverse team of early stage scientists in collaboration with programmers who have collectively decided to remain anonymous in order to avoid personalizing the website, to avoid that the site affects their scientific careers, and to avoid disgruntled authors from pressuring us into removing comments on their papers..




Q: Can third parties interface with PubPeer to show comments on their sites or in their software? Yes. We have an API designed exactly for this. Contact us with the details of your project and we will set you up with an API key.




Q: How is the featured list populated? Comments appear automatically on the featured list based on an internal algorithm that takes into account such things as the number of comments, the number of views, etc.
