Our Mission

The current academic publishing model rewards competition for a limited number of resources: publication in a few prestigious journals with excessively high rejection rates. We envision a future of open, transparent scientific collaboration where all new knowledge becomes immediately available and is openly evaluated by the entire community.

An Open Organisation

We are a not-for-profit, open organisation of volunteer scholars, librarians and open science enthusiasts dedicated to providing benefit to the scientific community. Become a member and help us promote a new culture of ethical and socially responsible science.

Author-guided Open Peer Review

We propose an innovative research evaluation model, which challenges the assumption that formal peer review can only be arranged and handled by journal editors.
