    Main issue in modern word is not access to information but overflow of it.
    Strength of peer reviewed literature is that all articles in it are heavily
    scrutinized so you can trust their content.
    On open data market you must be much more careful and in case of
    research this can even mean that you will have to reproduce experiment to
    make sure that described results are correct.

    I know that peer review can be unpleasant, however it generally do more
    good than harm.

    Finally I think that Dr Conboy made mistake of trying to cram all her
    conclusions into a single paper while some of them required additional
    experiments.
