RE peer review (wish this were already underway as opposed to 2017)

"Peer Reviewers’ Openness Initiative, version 2.1

Openness and transparency are core values of science. As a manifestation of those values, a minimum requirement for publication of any scientific results must be the public submission of materials used in generating those results. As reviewers, it is our responsibility to ensure that publications meet certain minimum quality standards.

We therefore agree that as reviewers, starting 1 January 2017, we will not offer comprehensive review for, nor recommend the publication of, any manuscript that does not meet the following minimum requirements. Once such a manuscript has been certified by the authors to meet these minimum requirements, we will proceed with a more comprehensive review of the manuscript. [read the guidelines for reviewers]"

If you see Twitter accounts of academics with the 'PRO' symbol, it refers to this initiative.
