Anybody know of any scholarly journals operating completely, or even just conducting peer review, on Reddit?

@jgmac1106 alternatives are certainly an option, and if I were to go that route, I'd probably use Postmill ( or Voat (

But I think the strength of something like Reddit is having a built-in user base rather than having to build a community from scratch.

@jgmac1106 LoL, well I suppose they could create alternate non-pseud accounts for the purposes of the journal.

@jgmac1106 I just really like the workflow of JOSS (, which conducts all of its review on Github. I'm curious of an alternative platform that could fulfill the same function but for non-software types.

@jgmac1106 that's a good idea! I do like Hypothesis a lot. This would also match with another idea I've had where the "journal" includes simply a link to the published work which is hosted on a preprint repository or somewhere else. Sort of an overlay journal built on top of the rest of the internet. Then the Hypothesis annotation could syndicate back to that page as you suggested.

@clintlalonde @jgmac1106 yea, OJS is a little to "traditional" for my tastes 😀

I'm more interested in what a more modern approach might look like.
