do we need peer reviewed blogs?
I can’t help but hurt myself.
[save me from my irrational self]
I’m starting to see the value of peer review. In fact, the way I see peer review is a lot like I see the blogsphere. Comments from your peers! Not strict control and set topics, but rather comments given on your work. So rock on peer review system, save me from my irrational self. Bring on the discipline. There certainly are times we could all benefit from feedback prior to sharing our thoughts. There’s also something to be said about worrying less about what others think, and more about just getting it out there! Peer reviewed blogging would simply give us more options. Having options is a great thing, and perhaps there is room for a middle ground between self-publishing and journal publishing.
