PeerJ Open Access Expands to Feature Computer Sciences

Announced in February 2015, PeerJ Computer Sciences is a new, cross-disciplinary, open-access journal publishing articles across all fields of computer science. This new journal is an offshoot of already established, PeerJ, an open-access, peer reviewed online journal that publishes original research in the biological, medical and health sciences. Both journals maintain rigorous peer-review standards while committed to rapid review and fast publication of research results.

Under the terms of a UC Berkeley partnership with PeerJ, when a paper by a Berkeley author is accepted for publication in PeerJ or PeerJ Computer Science, the Berkeley Library will automatically pay the cost of a Basic Membership for each Berkeley author. That membership will allow authors to publish one PeerJ article every year, for life, for free.

Listed below are some of the Berkeley-authored PeerJ articles published through the UC Berkeley Library partnership.
