Coupling Pre-Prints and Post-Publication Peer Review for Fast, Cheap, Fair, and Effective Science Publishing

Michael Eisen, Leslie B. Vosshall, it is NOT junk, Feb 12, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The title says it all. This is, in my view, the future of academic publishing, and of educational publishing in general, if we can break the publishers' hold on the marketplace and especially the distribution system. "It would be relatively simple to give reviewers of published pre-prints a set of tools to specify the most appropriate audience for the paper, to anticipate their expected level of interest in the work, and to gauge the impact of the work." I might add that newsletters like OLDaily could and would be an essential part of the post-publication peer review system. Image: Future of Scientific Publishing.
