Premise: Decentralization stands to significantly enhance transparency and integrity within scientific research, mitigating the risks associated with biases, manipulation, and hidden agendas that often influence traditional publication systems. By embracing this approach, universal access to invaluable scientific knowledge becomes achievable, liberating research findings from confining paywalls and accessibility barriers. This inclusivity fosters a more democratic distribution of information, reaching a broader audience and empowering diverse perspectives. In contrast, centralized systems remain vulnerable to censorship and control wielded by a limited few. Decentralization acts as a safeguard against undue influence or censorship, thereby upholding the essential integrity of scientific dissemination. By transitioning to a decentralized model, the publication process becomes a platform for diverse viewpoints, fortifying the validation process and preventing the undue dominance of particular institutions or ideologies. This move not only cultivates a more comprehensive and inclusive peer-review structure but also opens the door to potential tokenization of the review process.
