Launch of PeerJ Subject Pages
Over the last few months we’ve been very busy behind the scenes taking the time to listen to all of our users, and asking them what more they’d like to see. We built PeerJ with the scientific community in mind, so it is extremely important to us that we not only listen to our users, but also deliver the best possible platform based on their feedback.
So, in response to some of the feedback, we are delighted to announce the launch today of our subject pages for each of the 92 subject areas that PeerJ covers. As a cross-disciplinary journal we know that our users often want to focus on the subject areas that matter most to them, and our subject pages will enable that.
We also hope that these pages will become community driven over the coming months by giving our users a more focused space to interact with their peers, and by highlighting the Reviewers and Editors in each field.
Our article submissions are increasing month on month, so as more content is published in PeerJ we want to make it as easy as possible to find the research that matters most to you. Next year we will also receive our first Impact Factor, which is likely to drive an increase in article submissions to PeerJ, therefore we wanted to build subject pages that help get you to the content you want faster.
We have already received some favourable comments on Twitter today as the early news spread:
‘Cool, @thePeerJ now has a Palaeontology index page…Think of it as the PeerJ Journal of Palaeontology’ @MikeTaylor
‘Awesome – @thePeerJ have just launched new subject pages!’ @protohedgehog
New: @thePeerJ now has subject pages so it’s easier to find papers in your field! @kirstyjean
‘Love the new @thePeerJ subject pages’ @docdez
We look forward to you stopping by the subject pages too, and as always we welcome any feedback you may have.
