PeerJ Computer Science was announced exactly a week ago today, and since then we’ve received lots of positive commentary. So to celebrate one week since our launch we’ve rounded up a linkfest to some of the lovely tweets we’ve already received.
In addition to our own blog posts announcing the launch we’ve also received our first computer science PrePrints. Exciting times! Submissions to the peer-review journal open this Thursday 12th February and we’re looking forward to receiving the first of many peer-review articles to come. And what’s more we’ve made it easy for you to submit – simply register your interest and get free publishing credits for you and your colleagues.
The following represents a good example of the Tweets we have received over the last 7 days:
