          Abstract

          In this talk, I will start from an introduction to the field of scholarly publishing, the main knowledge dissemination mechanism adopted by science, and I will pay particular attention to one of its most important aspects, peer review. I will present scholarly publishing and peer review aims and motivations, and discuss some of their limits: Nobel Prize winners experiencing rejected papers, fraudulent behavior, sometimes long publishing time, etc. I will then briefly mention Science 2.0, namely the use of Web 2.0 tools to do science in a hopefully more effective way. I will then move to the main aspect of the talk. My thesis is composed of three parts.
