An international group of top experts are willing to contribute to the development of a new tool for assessing the quality of new (Open Access) journals. These research funders, editors-in-chief of prestigious academic journals, and publishers discussed the results of studies into two possible quality indicators for young (Open Access) journals at a two day colloquium in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Although these quality indicators are not yet ready to use, they provided a good basis for discussing how to ensure greater insight into the quality of new journals.
