Published a “Post Publication Review” on Publons

A while ago I posted in this blog an analysis on fitness genes, illustrating an use of the Bioconductor data packages and based on a recently published paper (Are fitness genes more conserved across species?).

This week I have been contacted by the team of Publons and asked to paste the same analysis on their platform as a “Post Publication Review”. Of course I’ve accepted: Post Publication Review of High-Resolution CRISPR Screens Reveal Fitness Genes and Genotype-Specific Cancer Liabilities

Publons is a social network for peer reviewer, where you can list of papers you reviewed, get credit for it, and even post new reviews on published papers. I personally like the idea of Publons very much, because I think that reviewing papers is an important part of science, which unfortunately doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.
