This is a really interesting development, funded by Tim O'Reilly, it's
called PeerJ and it allows academics to publish one journal article a
year for life ($99), or unlimited journal articles per year for life
($299). It's not free, but that's a pretty amazing deal considering you
get peer reviews and editing help for that price:
