Scientific Communication Is down at the Moment, Please Check Again Later [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Brian A. Nosek and Yoav Bar-Anan (this issue) offer a futuristic utopia on how scientific communication might work to the maximal benefit of science. I am highly sympathetic and even enthusiastic about the hallmarks of the changes that they propose. Their road map revolves around the principles of improving efficiency, transparency, openness, and maximal participation in the dissemination of scientific information. Almost all of the components of their utopia are in fact already applied or piloted in different scientific fields, so what they propose is not an impossible dream. Here, I discuss a few select aspects of the transformative process that they propose. I focus on aspects where I have alternative views or simply more uncertainty, rather than on the majority of issues where I am aligned with this utopia.
