Linkfest for the PeerJ launch

PeerJ published its first 30 articles a week ago (and published 10 more today), so it seemed like a good time to round up some of the coverage we received in a quick linkfest.

In addition to our own blog posts announcing the launch; overviewing some of the innovations of the site; explaining our choice of featured image; featuring some of the reaction to our Open Peer Review; and overviewing our technical infrastructure  the following represents a good sample of the coverage the launch received in the wider world:
