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