PeerJ publishes 1,000th article – another milestone in our publishing history
Today we are in a celebratory mood at PeerJ as we have reached yet another milestone in our publishing history – our 1,000th peer-reviewed article published today: “Can endocranial volume be estimated accurately from external skull measurements in great-tailed grackles (Quiscalus mexicanus)?”
Not only have we now published our 1,000th article, but tomorrow marks 3 years to the day that PeerJ first opened its doors with the vision of making open access low cost and accessible to all. Right from the outset we wanted to offer authors the opportunity to publish in a high quality journal, but at very minimal cost to them. We always felt that if the cost to sequence an entire human genome is nearing the magical $99 goal, then why shouldn’t we be able to publish an article for that as well? In other words, we don’t think that publishing research should cost more than actually doing the research in the 21st Century. And nor would it seem do you – we are honored that over 5,600 authors agree with this sentiment too and have chosen to publish in PeerJ.
Thank you to everyone who has believed in us over the last 3 years – our Authors, Editorial and Advisory Boards, Reviewers and those reading the research we publish – we look forward to announcing our 2000th article in the near future!
If you’d like to join us on the journey to our 2,000th article why not submit your article to PeerJ today.
