Morning:       Transparency of peer review  

Should peer review reports (with or without reviewer identities) become part of the public scholarly record that is linked to a scientific work? We will discuss whether such transparency is desirable from the viewpoint of scientists (both as authors and reviewers), funding agencies, and journals. If transparent peer review is desirable, how can it be implemented and what might be barriers to adoption?
