A fascinating idea and project from the estimable Public Knowledge Project (PKP):

We are calling it a publication facts label (PFL). It is intended to appear with each research article [and] emulates the look and feel of the Nutrition Facts label on food products in the United States. At this point in its development, the PFL draws data and links from the journal’s publishing platform on eight critical elements for scholarly publishing and presents to readers: (a) the publisher’s identity; (b) the journal’s scholarly editorial oversight; (c) the journal’s article acceptance rate; (d) the indexing of the journal; (e) the article’s number of peer reviewers and reviewer backgrounds; (f) the article authors' competing interests; (g) the research study’s data availability; and (h) the funders of the research.

mockups of PKP’s proposed Publication Facts Label

The Learned Publishing overview (co-authored by PKP founder John Willinsky) continues:

The PFL is intended to assemble facts about the editorial process and the backgrounds of those involved. It is meant to present those facts on articles in every field across all journals in a common format that can be readily consulted when a question arises about a work or the publication.

It’s a clever idea. See also this PKP post that includes links to interviews and writeups.
