Forgive me if this isn't relevant to this community. Myself and a couple of friends noticed the lack of publishing opportunities available to early-career scientists. We all desperately wanted to find somewhere we could submit some writing and the only thing we found was one or two undergraduate research journals, and let's face it, most undergrad/master's students don't have publication worthy research.
We think that all scientists should be able to contribute to the conversation and publishing in scientific journals is really limited to people within academic circles. We really thought it was a shame that the opportunity wasn't out there for early-career scientists so we decided to create a peer-reviewed academic magazine publishing short works from early-career bioscientists. We are absolutely dedicated to open science and will never charge anyone to publish with us and the articles we publish will always be free to read.
We only launched a few weeks ago and we would love feedback on how we could improve the platform/reach more people who could be interested in publishing.
