The OpenPub Project

The OpenPub Project is an experiment testing future directions in scholarly publishing for ecology, evolutionary biology, and the earth, ocean and environmental sciences. We’re launching a website to host scientific preprints alongside open discussion and review. We’re throwing in a reputation system to boot, so authors and readers can better assess the usefulness of reviews and comments. And it’s all going to be done out in the open.

Interest piqued? Sign up for our announcement list below. If you want to help us out right now, we invite you to take our survey on scholarly publishing practices.
