Anybody know of any scholarly journals operating completely, or even just conducting peer review, on Reddit?
But I think the strength of something like Reddit is having a built-in user base rather than having to build a community from scratch.
@drb Think you may overestimate number of scholars on reddit
and over estimate number of scholars willing to do peer review on the same place people go to buy used panties
@jgmac1106 LoL, well I suppose they could create alternate non-pseud accounts for the purposes of the journal.
@drb postmill looks cool!
Yeah I want to get all of our professional organizations off of the silos and onto the web.
Need to move away from member benefit and let knowledge be a member recruiter
@drb I might lean towards hypothesis and a simple html form anyways, you could then syndicate both the annotation/comment feed and the final reviews anywhere
@jgmac1106 that's a good idea! I do like Hypothesis a lot. This would also match with another idea I've had where the "journal" includes simply a link to the published work which is hosted on a preprint repository or somewhere else. Sort of an overlay journal built on top of the rest of the internet. Then the Hypothesis annotation could syndicate back to that page as you suggested.
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
