Peer-reviewed publishing at warp speed

In some ways, the most interesting part of the whole Facebook use and grades controversy was the process by which scholars responded to the hype over the original study. In this blog post at Crooked Timber, Eszter Hargittai, sociologist and current fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society describes how she and two other scholars “published a formal response to the media frenzy covering the study that claimed a relationship between Facebook use and lower grades.” Facebook, Twitter, and peer-reviewed online publishing are all key ingredients.

For a first-person account of a new model of academic publishing, read Facebook and grades revisited aka peer-reviewed publication at record speed. What do libraries and librarians need to do to support this kind of rapid and responsive publishing model?
