Stem cell researchers have accused journals of biased review and suggested that a remedy for this would be having reviewers' comments published as supplementary material alongside papers (this policy has been adopted by the EMBO journals and has been used for some time at BioMed Central).

I found that another new publisher dared to adopt Open Peer review system.

Some links are available here:

etc.

I think this advanced and transparent Open peer review system is really impressive.
