Our web site (policies, plans, and progress can be found HERE)

The Unjournal organizes and commissions public journal-independent feedback, rating, and evaluation of journal articles, preprints (or working papers), and dynamically-presented research projects. It focuses on highly impactful policy-relevant work (especially in economics, social science, and business).

Our twin goals
1. Making ‘peer evaluation and rating’ of open projects (instead of conventional 0/1 publishing of frozen pdf's) become a standard 'high status' outcome in academia/research, especially in economics and social sciences

2. Creating and coalescing around an efficient system for 'publishing', gaining credibility, and getting feedback for effective altruism and global-priorities-aligned research.

"Making rigorous research more impactful, and impactful research more rigorous."
