where biography meets neuroscience, where biography meets nonsense
Seems that you have to publish something, although it seems even a letter is acceptable...."How can I join PubMed Commons?If you have at least one article or any other item (including letters) in PubMed, you are eligible to join."fromhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedcommons/faq/#canijoinSo maybe you could get a letter published, join NCBI, give them your email address and invite yourself - well this from a quick scan. Maybe this in itself is more difficult than it appears at first....McGregor's wife
One irony is that if you have not been published in a peer-reviewed journal but your work has been plagiarized you wouldn't be granted entry to the club, and once inside the club there appear to be strict limits on what can be discussed, which makes me think the whole thing might be just window-dressing and an attempt to make it appear that post-publication peer review is being hosted. I think places like Retraction Watch and PubPeer might be more worthwhile.
