Everything we publish is 100% open access (CC BY 4.0). We offer optional open peer-review correspondence alongside your article e.g reviews, revisions, rebuttal letter.
More than 300 senior editors and advisors are working with us to make PeerJ Computer Science the most exciting and prestigious cross-disciplinary computer science journal online.
PeerJ is currently delivering a first decision in 22 days in biomedical peer review - we want PeerJ Computer Science to operate at this speed too.
Pay once for a membership and publish a peer-reviewed article every year for the rest of your life. Every article author needs a plan to publish. Preprint publishing is free and unlimited. Or go with the low APC of just $895.
Invested in by Tim O'Reilly (via O'Reilly Media and O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures) and SAGE publishing, as well as backed by an Advisory Board of computer science luminaries, PeerJ Computer Science is well placed to meet and address the changing needs of the computer science community.
We offer preprint publishing within 24 hours, enabling you to submit a draft before entering the full peer-review process. By using this service you can quickly establish precedent, solicit feedback and work on revisions of your manuscript.
Our modern and bespoke publishing platform ensures that the submission process is fast, efficient and easy to use. Our aim is to bring 21st century publishing to the computer science community.
No matter the device, we aim to bring a beautiful reading experience. We aim to please machines too with json and xml versions of everything, as well as extensive microdata formatting within the HTML.
Want to see where your article is being read - and by how many? Our article level metrics enables you to see the number of visitors, views and downloads you article has received, and also links you to the source of these metrics.
Engage with published articles and preprints by using our Stackoverflow-like Q&A system. You’ll be able to post a question on any article published, or answer questions posed by others on your published article or preprint.
There's a DOI for all of the important objects, which helps in identification, reuse, citing, gaining credit for peer-review reviews, and more.
We're aiming to be the number one publisher when it comes to integrating source code and utilizing it.
