A project-based organisation

We run parallel projects related to our common vision and goal, as summarised in the Independent Peer Review Manifesto. Each member decides in which projects to contribute and in what way.

We are always open to ideas for new projects and collective actions that can help shape the future of academia.

If you wish to contribute to existing, or suggest new projects, please get in touch by sending us an email or through our contact form.

We developed a prototype repository with overlay services, to demonstrate how scholarly communication can live and prosper without commercial publishers. Read more 

We propose an innovative research evaluation model, which challenges the assumption that formal peer review can only be arranged and handled by journal editors. Read and sign the manifesto
