Editor Testimonials

What scientific researcher would choose a process other than PeerJ now that it is available? Peer-review of the highest quality, rapid editorial decisions, and open access at reasonable prices are just the most obvious reasons.

Jen Wagner, University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Integration of Genetic Healthcare Technologies (Penn CIGHT)

I am and/or have been an editor, associate editor at at least 10 different journals. None of their online systems for paper handling nor any of their online publications have been as accessible, or as beautiful, as the PeerJ system. It’s truly unique.

Keith Crandall, Professor & Director of the Computational Biology Institute at George Washington University

I believe that it is critical that (1) research be open access and (2) that we should support alternative models and experiments in how to go about paying for open access.

Jonathan Eisen, University of California, Davis

If your work is important enough to do and get funding for, then it should too be important to share as widely and quickly as possible. When I think of Open Access I think of the old phrase “put your money where your mouth is”. And at under $100 per author, PeerJ offers a solution for even the smallest of mouths.

Fabiana Kubke, Senior Lecturer at the School of Medical Sciences (Department of Anatomy with Radiology) and a member of the Centre for Brain Research at the University of Auckland

The web interface is really great. So far I’ve only used this as an editor and not as an author but it was so intuitive and easy to use - the immediate reaction is “why can’t all journals design their interfaces like this?” I really like how the papers look on the web and the way PeerJ shows figures to capture interest in the articles.

Dee Carter, University of Sydney

I think a unified host for both preprints and published articles is a huge step forward; this is particularly valuable for fields where there isn’t really a culture of preprint servers. PeerJ is affordable, peer-reviewed, fast, and open access. As an added bonus, the editorial board includes a lot of great scientific minds, many of the leaders in their respective fields.

Andy Farke, Augustyn Family Curator of Paleontology of the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology

PeerJ is fast and friendly, adapted to the “bottom billions” —those who want quality scientific information published in a fair and inexpensive way.

Jafri Abdullah, Professor of Neurosciences and Director of the Center for Neuroscience Services and Research, Universiti Sains Malaysia
