Vox interviews the founders of PubPeer, a platform for sharing peer reviews of scientific articles after those articles have already been published.

Vox asks what’s wrong with the scientific peer-review process right now, and the PubPeer founders respond, “While standard ‘pre-publication’ peer review often does improve the quality of published work, it is also clear that it lets through a huge number of mistakes and over-interpretations, and a surprising amount of misconduct. And the system as it stands has great difficulty in correcting work once published.”
