Given our one year anniversary, I thought I’d collect together a few examples of preprint commenting at work. These have taken place in the comment boxes of Haldane’s sieve and/or across a range of other blogs.
These are somewhat isolated cases, as the majority of preprints pass without any comment. It would be great to see more of this level of commentary. Remember comments can be simple inquiries about methods/figures/reference etc and don’t have to be super involved. In general we’ve found authors to be very responsive to comments, perhaps in part because they can take place as a more informal conversation without the pressures of publication concerns.
