SCHOLARS PROPOSE STRENGTHENING PEER REVIEW ELECTRONICALLY
An editor at The Journal of the American Medical Association and an adjunct
professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco have
recommended an electronic peer-review system that would allow researchers to
have ready access to all comments related to a particular paper through a
consolidated database. Editors could review readers' comments, request
responses from authors, and update the database on a quarterly basis.
Journals could make publishing a work conditional upon such participation,
and people who submit comments would be required to disclose any conflicts
of interest or affiliations that might affect their response. (Chronicle of
Higher Education 28 Feb 97)


Interesting. My library hasn't received that issue of CHE yet. Anybody
know what sort of db and access software they plan to use?
