The current system for assessing and publicly notifying concerns about publication integrity is slow, inefficient, inconsistent, inadequate, and opaque. Readers are, therefore, left unaware of potential issues about publications or are given inadequate information to assess publication integrity. We propose a new process for dealing with publication integrity involving the establishment of independent panel(s) that assess publication integrity and transparently report the outcomes of those assessments, independent of the assessment of any misconduct.
