Open pad for asking questions on the topic of extending review to news media to help use of science in news.
The paper raises the question that preprints are misused by the news media. In response to this question this document is to collect questions around the idea of extending open peer review to the use of science in news media in general.
Open peer review systems like Prereview and Plaudit have brought smart, nimble, federates review to science. Their inspiration helps us ask the question – could a similar review systems be build for the use of science in news media journalism.
Such a system could be applied to social media as well and allow reviewers to be ranked as reliable, etc. Thank you to Victor Venema of https://fediscience.org for coming up with the idea in the GenR comments. Victor contributes to a service like this Climate Feedback.
