PeerJ: A new business model of OA publishing

PeerJ, a new open access journal, was announced last week:

Founded by seasoned academic publishing and technology professionals from PLoS ONE
and Mendeley, PeerJ will publish a broad based, rapid, peer-reviewed journal (‘PeerJ’) and an
innovative preprint server (‘PeerJ PrePrints’). PeerJ will open for submissions in Summer 2012, and
will publish its first articles in December 2012.

Each researcher pays a one-time membership fee ranging from $99 (maximum of one publication in PeerJ per year) to $259 (unlimited number of publications allowed per year). This is a lifetime membership – so long as the researcher makes a yearly review (e.g. a comment on a submission or publication, or a formal peer review), as a member, he or she has the right to publish free in PeerJ. All authors of a paper must be members of PeerJ for the paper to be published in PeerJ.

PeerJ will consider submissions in the areas of Biological and Medical Sciences, and all articles published in PeerJ will undergo a peer review process.

Read more coverage of PeerJ, including interviews with the founders and speculation on the future of the journal, at Scientific American, Library Journal, Publisher’s Weekly or Confessions of a Science Librarian.
