Crowdsourcing, Publication model, Computer supported cooperative work


In this study, we examine the feasibility of reviewing research publications through crowdsourcing. We propose a post-publication review model where the research materials are posted online for the crowd volunteers to review. One such platform, named PuGLi, is prepared and the data collected from it is analyzed. The analysis raises some interesting questions related to the challenges of attracting crowd volunteers, determining truthfulness of opinions, and obtaining the final judgment from multiple opinions received from the crowd.
