  1. *Extremely* informative. Not only did this provide me with a great overview of what is involved in the current processes involved with peer review but it also provided me with some food for thought about the future of the ‘peer-review’ process. The potential for technology to help support and facilitate a postive impact on the generation of knowledge for society in innovative ways is quite exciting.

  2. Thanking you some good information
