Mietchen D. Peer reviews: make them public. Nature 2011;473(452)
A public-review policy would help editors and increase a journal’s reputation, particularly if others in the field publicly shared their own relevant observations. Public reviews, including those of rejected manuscripts, would also provide an incentive for authors to submit their work only when it is ready, helping to lower rejection rates.
