"African scientists are getting their own open access publication platform, which will use a system of transparent, post-publication peer review.
The African Academy of Sciences, in partnership with F1000, is launching AAS Open Research, which will offer immediate online publication to AAS-funded and affiliated researchers.
Peer review reports will be published alongside the articles, together with the names and affiliations of the reviewers, with authors having the option to revise their article in response. Accompanying data and any associated software code will also be made freely available.
Launching early next year, AAS Open Research follows the model of funder publication platforms established by the Wellcome Trust and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which also use a model developed by F1000."
