Rate Abstracts

This feature gives you the opportunity to rate abstracts in the same way used in Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature. You'll be shown a paper's title and abstract (a short summary of the paper's content), then you can select the level of endorsement of human-caused global warming and the type of research. You can then compare your ratings to our final ratings.

You need to login (via the left margin) to rate papers. This way, your ratings will be stored under your username, enabling you to view all your ratings and continue to add to them over time. Your ratings will not be visible to anyone else. Click here to register a new account.
