@Victor Venema (must adapt to the modern mention convention, not the old e-mail lists! :)
@Dr. Gerald Leppert  :verified:

'Grassroots journals' reminds of 'PCI' (https://peercommunityin.org/how-does-it-work-2/), which seems to developed the concept further...

Now we need to see PCI adopt the fediverse.

@education I know PCI. They do great work, but their system does not break the power of the publishers.

PCI only review pre-prints (which is just a small part of the submitted papers) and these papers are still send to journals to assess their importance.

Grassroots reviews are made after publication. That has the advantage that then the studies are understood much better and can be reviewed by people who worked with it.
