Scholarly Research Exchange: a new open access journal employing a
 transparent peer review system

 Press Release
 February 21, 2008

 Hindawi Publishing Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of
 Scholarly Research Exchange, a peer-reviewed, open access journal that
 publishes original research articles in all areas of science, technology,
 and medicine. Scholarly Research Exchange will bring a number of important
 innovations to scholarly journal publishing, including a transparent peer
 review system in which authors and reviewers interact directly throughout
 the peer review process.

 Authors submitting to Scholarly Research Exchange will suggest potential
 reviewers who will have to be approved by the journal's Editorial Office.
 Reviewers will be asked to provide an assessment of the quality of the
 manuscript, a written critique addressed to the authors, and a written
 commentary addressed to the journal's readers. Once an article is accepted
 for publication, the reviewers' commentaries and their assessment of the
 manuscript's quality are published alongside the final version of the
 article. In addition to these reviewers' evaluations, members of the
 scientific community will also be able to participate in a discussion
 around every manuscript.

 "Scholarly Research Exchange goes well beyond the current journal model and
 brings a number of new ideas to the scholarly publishing industry," said
 Ahmed Hindawi, the company's CEO. "It provides a truly different experience
 to authors and reviewers, and since it is highly scalable by its very
 nature, it has the potential to make a significant impact across all areas
 of STM publishing."

 Scholarly Research Exchange is hosted on a custom built online platform,
 which is located at http://www.syrexe.com/, facilitating the journal's
 interactive editorial system. The journal is published with the support of
 an international Advisory Board, and a detailed description of the journal
 and its editorial model can be found on the journal web site.
