Alex asked for papers more relevant to peer incentives, found these:

Student incentives - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1574069206020150

Productivity under group incentives - http://www.jstor.org/stable/2951348

1. The performance of an experimental group in the past influences the performance under any group incentive performances in the present in terms of effort level.

2. Tournament-based group incentives are very effective

3. Monitoring works but is costly

Social effects of team incentives - http://www.nber.org/papers/w16687

In a team setting, team members value effort from other team members differently than their own, and team incentives are more cost-efficient, suggesting a social effect from working in a team.

Incentives for task-related efforts in workgroups - http://pubsonline.informs.org/doi/abs/10.1287/mnsc.1070.0714

If employees are outcome-linked, the optimal incentive scheme for individuals is individual reward and in group, it is group punishment. When people within a group have the opportunity to help one another, optimal group incentives are positive. Also, when people in a group can share information, individual and group incentives play complementary roles to each other.
