Pitch Journal

Stephen Downes, November 27th, reports on Pitch, a new Open Access peer reviewed journal in educational research:
Now what's really interesting about Pitch is the peer review system. "Pitch uses a democratic method of peer review where all readers participate in the review process. Instead of sending submitted articles away for 12 months of secret review by three individuals, Pitch allows your peers to review your work. In Pitch everyone 'pitches in' to rate papers submitted to the journal."
