Submission + - Journal offers flat fee for 'all you can publish'->

ananyo writes: "In what publishing experts say is a radical experiment, a new open-access venture is asking its authors for only a one-off fee to secure a lifetime membership that will allow them to publish free, peer-reviewed research papers. The venture, called PeerJ, formally announced its launch on 12 June.
The model represents a big departure for science publishing, which has traditionally been dominated by two basic business models. Either subscribers pay for access, or authors pay for each publication — often thousands of dollars — with access being free."
