The PeerJ Mission

To solve our greatest challenges we need a 21st century update to knowledge-share and scholarly communication. PeerJ's mission is to help the world efficiently publish its knowledge.

We do this through Internet-scale innovation and Open Access licensing to save academics' time, money, and to maximize recognition of their contributions.

PeerJ provides academics with two Open Access publication venues: PeerJ (a peer-reviewed academic journal) and PeerJ PrePrints (a 'pre-print server'). Both are focused on the Biological and Medical Sciences. Q&A + annotations provide a second route to gaining credit for knowledge-share.

PeerJ starts at $99 - for lifetime publishing, and public PeerJ PrePrints are free to publish. It is always free to read, download, and reuse PeerJ articles.
