Reviews and other relevant resources from volatile media

I am not sure how to best collect and review relevant and quality-fitlered studies and literature that are posted in volatile media such as Twitter threads, bioRxiv or others and haven’t undergone formal peer review. Should we do that here?

This is a perfect example of critical peer review outside of the publication industry.

I would suggest a Github repo, similar in style the popular “awesome” lists (although COVID certainly isn’t awesome).

Each paper (that is link to paper) can only be added through a pull request and we need to set up a few reviewers that critically review those papers or search for critical reviews and link those. So for each paper the review would happen in the pull request discussion (or alternatively through issues, which is more easily accessible for those who don’t know Github that well).

Each entry in the list can link back to the pull request discussion or issue.
