The success of the site is due to the expertise and diligence of our users, who create all of its content. Nevertheless, comments should always be considered as sources of potentially useful information whose veracity readers must evaluate for themselves.

The operation of the web site and any views expressed on it are completely independent of the employers of the Foundation's members.

The PubPeer foundation controls the domains pubpeer.com, pubpeer.org and pubpeer.net, as well as the @PubPeer twitter account.

Further information can be found in our FAQ and Terms of Service.
