University of Liege launches an OA journal

Reflexions is a new OA journal published by the University of Liege.  (Thanks to Bernard Rentier.)  Reflexions does not appear to be peer reviewed.  Instead, its purpose is to showcase the research of UL researchers and share it with the world, which it does in three ways:  by describing it in lay terms, by publishing in French and English, and by providing OA. 

UL adopted an OA mandate in March 2007 and this journal is a natural extension of that commitment.  UL wants to disseminate the research of its faculty, and Reflexions is an affirmative step to make that research accessible and intelligible to a larger audience.
