Having your work more openly available,
faster feedback by a much broader audience,
having more means to communicate and visualize research.

The job of a reviewer doesn't change.

If combined with open reviews,
more visibility and reward become possible,
plus non-solicited reviewers can also come in.

> As a reader?

No paywalls.
A more flexible format to read on different devices,
with new interaction and discussion possibilities.
