    I reckon you guys are on to a winner with this concept. I am really looking forward to seeing how the post aggregation process works. It has great potential for journal article authors to throw their work out to the blogosphere and gauge the reaction. The possibilities are exciting!!

    Hi. This is a really great idea. Extremely helpful for academic researchers. I’ve written a post (in Portuguese) in my weblog Regresso ao Abismo and I intend to use the icons.

    This is a great idea. The ability to easily find posts that relate to peer-reviewed content is excellent.

    I have a few technical suggestions on the implementation if you’re interested:

    1. I’m not sure how you’re intending to find the posts (back links from the images) for aggregation purposes, but have you considered using a Technorati Tag?

    It’d be easy to incorporate in the icon markup, and you’ll get some of the aggregation features “for free”.

    2. Great to see you encouraging the use of DOI, have you considered suggesting how bloggers should markup the citation? E.g. using a microformat, like this:

    This would help you extra additional metadata about the cited article, even if the DOI isn’t available.

    I’m also keen to see how sites like IngentaConnect can be extended to support your initiative, e.g. by adding tools like “Blog This” buttons that create the required BPR3 markup for the blogger.

    Get in touch if you want to talk further.
