SciPost is a new website that might be of interest to readers of this blog. It claims to be the “complete scientific publication portal; Managed by professional scientists; For open, global and perpetual access to science”. Thanks to Guido Bacciagaluppi for the pointer.

One response to “New website: SciPost

  1. Scipost has all characteristics of the conventional publication industry,
    Arxiv, peer review, citation mechanism and a closed community. I wonder when these walls will be torn down.
    So-called open access peer reviewed journals have been generated by thousands. I wonder why. Peer review costs the author time, money and brings no real advantage. Peer review requires unbiased omniscient reviewers. The citation mechanism is a complete disaster. The registration requirement, which involves endorsement of Arxiv works as an incomprehensible block for scientific renewal.
