There are two major problems with science publishing today: (1) restricted access and (2) poor and delayed peer review process. While the former is being solved by: (a) encouraging open access publications with higher publication fees and (b) providing access in violation of copyright acts (eg. Sci-Hub). The latter issue with peer review is a more difficult problem to tackle. This is where BioPeers, an initiative by the researchers and for the researchers, comes to rescue science!
Why is the peer review process poor and slow?
Peer review is important for publishing good science. However, the process is often very slow…
An incentivized peer review solution in biology: zero usage fee and owned by the participating researchers themselves.
