ASERL webinar. Dr. Peter Binfield, Publisher and Co-Founder of PeerJ, and previously the Publisher of PLOS ONE, provides an overview of the state of play regarding open access megajournals (journals such as PLOS ONE or PeerJ,which peer-review only for scientific and methodological soundness, and not for ‘impact’ or ‘degree of advance’). He reviews what makes a journal ‘mega’; how many of these titles there are and how they are performing; and he explains how this editorial model appears poised to significantly change the publishing landscape.
