On 29 September 2015, the electronic magazine International Innovation alerted readers to the launch of a new mathematics journal. Entitled Discrete Analysis, the journal will subject to peer review articles that have been hosted on the preprint server arXiv. Free access to the articles will be provided without imposing any fees on the authors. The journal aims to “challenge existing models of academic publishing,” according to Prof. Timothy Gowers, the managing editor.

This new journal and its model exemplify the rapidly changing landscape of scientific publishing, peer review and evaluation – the subject of “Publish and Perish?”. The seminar, which took place at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, featured talks by six individuals with extensive experience in scientific research, publishing, evaluation and management.
