"Scholars Test Web Alternative to Peer Review"
 
Patritia Cohen
 
"Now some humanities scholars have begun to challenge the monopoly that peer 
review has on admission to career-making journals and, as a consequence, to the 
charmed circle of tenured academe. They argue that in an era of digital media 
there is a better way to assess the quality of work. Instead of relying on a few 
experts selected by leading publications, they advocate using the Internet to 
expose scholarly thinking to the swift collective judgment of a much broader 
interested audience."
