[rkgjmqgg] Partial peer review

A peer reviewer of a scientific paper might have replicated the experiments and analysis and got the same results.  Or, looked over the Methods and deemed them sufficiently clear that the experiment could be replicated, and checked the analysis.  Or something else, perhaps just endorsed that the author is a trustworthy and diligent person.

Accompanying a publication, it would be nice if it were declared how far the peer reviewers went to, well, review.  This would help readers decide how much to trust the paper.
