Needed: Open reviews

A friend of mine has sent me the manuscript of one of his papers — which is one of the best that I have read in quite a while. Still there seems to be some problems in getting it published, and as he also notes in his e-mail, there is always a struggle between the “real” science and the social science.

Making the peer reviews open is the only honourable option: let the entire world know the comments of the reviewer (at least, if not his or her identity). Things will improve, visibly!
