eLife is now acitve

The new biology journal eLife is now active (though the inaugural edition is not officially out). All I can say is that if someone is going to successfully reinvent scientific publishing, it’s these guys.

Involving the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, the Wellcome Trust, and over 200 of the world’s most talented biomedical scientists….

At eLife, our goal is to accelerate scientific advancement by promoting modes of communication whereby new results are made available quickly, openly, and in a way that helps others to build upon them. We will make data more accessible, more useable. We’ll aim to create a broader audience for important discoveries, and we’ll work to trace the impact of individual contributions – on individual fields of study, on science, and on society as a whole.
