Peer Review is an experimental scientific and academic publishing platform. It uses a reputation system to match reviewers to papers and provides a clean interface for reviewing. It is open source and diamond open access. It is currently in open beta and being maintained by a single developer as a side project. The hope is for it to become a non-profit governed and funded by its community.
