It seems like a system is in place where “this is have we’ve always done it” is benefitting the publishing houses/models.
I understand and respect the need for valid/reliable peer edited research/pubs. I also think there are new opportunities for an open peer review process.
I also believe/know that the Internet is a “self-cleaning oven.” If there is good stuff out there (or incorrect info…it’ll come out. In many ways that is an incredible peer review system.
Plus…it has the added benefit of putting good content in people’s hands.
