Open-access platform Libre launched

Open-access platform Libre launched | TELT |

New platform to allow academics to publish articles directly with peer-review following.  All open access.


Cofounder Pandelis Perakakis:

'"Instead of being the “gatekeepers of quality”, journals’ role should be “to detect the most interesting articles and combine them in meaningful collections for specific audiences” – at a much reduced cost.

Reviews will be citable and readers will be able to rate them. The Libre platform will also present various metrics about article usage.'
