PeerJ – Open access Journal gets started

June 13, 2012

Open access is still evolving and the bottom-line is finding the revenue model that works. But open access is inevitable and the glory days of the high impact factor, pay-walled journals is coming to an end.   They will not disappear any time soon but history will show that their era was the 20th century and that their decline was the natural consequence of the world-wide-web.

PeerJ provides academics with two Open Access publication venues: PeerJ (a peer-reviewed academic journal) and PeerJ PrePrints (a ‘pre-print server’). Both are focused on the Biological and Medical Sciences, and together they provide an integrated solution for your publishing needs. Submissions open late Summer.
