Open-access journals confuse contributors as they experiment with peer review models

“Just because scholars who seek to publish in open-access journals are open to new forms of peer review, that doesn’t mean they all see eye-to-eye — or know what to expect.

Meanwhile, other journals are even criticized for being too much like the traditional publishing they aim to reform.” (via Inside Higher Ed)
