Here's something to provoke  a healthy robust conversation. Link is http://code.google.com/p/gpeerreview/

quote from Zen Faulke's blog....

Google takes on journals? <http://neurodojo.blogspot.com/2009/02/google-takes-on-journals.html> 

 <http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_TZ60-72xZZk/SZISgemh5eI/AAAAAAAABbI/5bfOw86Cqyc/s1600-h/google_code.png> The reaction to this <http://code.google.com/p/gpeerreview/>  will be interesting... At first glance, it looks like Google is firing a shot across the bow at, oh... pretty much every scientific research journal.

	As long as big journals provide a useful service, this tool will only enhance their effectiveness. But the more they take months to review our publications, and the more they give unqualified reviews, and the more they force us to clear irrelevant hurdles prior to publication, and the more they lock up our works behind fees and copyright transfers, the more this tool will provide an alternative to their services.
