Date:2/11/2013

By publishing its first 30 peer-reviewed articles today, PeerJ moves one step closer to realizing that vision.

"We are doing things that no other publisher is doing," said Hoyt, Co-Founder and CEO of PeerJ. "It has been reported that the global academic community pays as much as $9.5B per year for access to academic journals. We believe that these costs could be reduced by as much as 75% using new business models such as that employed by PeerJ, and utilizing open distribution licenses such as the Creative Commons license. The result will be a net benefit to the global research effort and a welcome increase in the efficiency and effectiveness of academic publication."

PeerJ aims to establish a new model for the publication of all well reported, scientifically sound research in the Biological and Medical Sciences. To achieve that, the organization has built an economical and efficient peer review and publication system and assembled an Editorial Board of 800 esteemed academics, including an Advisory Board of 20 (five of who
