+ - A New Concept in Publishing Science->

Submitted by Shipud
Shipud (685171) writes "There are three concerns in publising scientific findings: the quality of the venue, the cost, and the distribution. Some journals are open access, but the publication cost ($2000-$4000) can be prohibitive. Those that are behind a paywall generaly have lower costs to get a paper in, but require high subscription fees from university libraries, and are inaccessible to the public. A new journal, PeerJ is trying a new model to be both open-access and cheap. Everything is published under a Creative Commons license, and the authors pay a one-time membership fee entitling them to a certain number of publications per year. O'Reilly media are backing this venture, and Tim O'Reilly is on the board. The quality is assured by a distinguished line of editors, and 10 Nobel laureates on the board of advisors."
