"Summary: We propose the creation of a scientist-driven, journal-agnostic peer review service that produces an “Evaluated Preprint” and facilitates subsequent publication in a journal.
...Peer Feedback picks up where preprints leave off: a scientist-driven system for journal-agnostic peer review. Peer Feedback could, over time, overcome some of the inefficiencies inherent in the cycles of journal rejection that take place today. Perhaps more importantly, it fosters a badly needed cultural change in peer review, deconvolving its “gatekeeping” function from its role in establishing scientific credibility and improving the work of the authors. Indeed, an audacious goal of Peer Feedback is to set new standards in the quality of peer review and its utility to science overall."
