                  Alternative Peer Review Models for Scholarship

For a forthcoming presentation [and, of course, the  obligatory associated Web registry and article {:-)],  I am greatly interested in the key articles/report/documents about  Alternative Peer Review for Scholarship, as well as examples of exemplar (Web-based) publishing initiatives  that have implemented one or more of these alternatives.

 The Alternative Models that come to mind are: 

Open Peer Review
Formal Peer Review with Subsequent Commentary
Commentary Only (No Prior Formal  Peer Review)
Pre and/or Post Commentary 
Citation-based Peer Review
Reader-based Peer Review
Computer-Assisted Peer Review
Collaborative Filtering 

and, of course

No Peer Review (Yes, No Review to Me can be reviewed  as an Alternative).

   I am *particularly* interested in any current research or implementations that are Computer-Assisted such as 
By Alvar Loria (1)  Gladys Faba (2) for the ARTEMISA Selection Committee 
(1)Instituto Nacional de Nutrición Salvador Zubiran, 14000 Mexico City, Mexico 
(2)Centro Nacional de Informacion y Documentacion en Salud, Mexico City, Mexico
