Academic Peer-Review…Crowd Sourced

This seems seriously problematic.... but an interesting direction for open philosophy. What do you think?

Sympoze: a network of high-quality academic publications from various disciplines that utilizes crowd sourcing for the peer-review process. Crowd sourcing the peer-review process improves a number of problems with the current academic publishing model.
  • Reduced referee burden
  • Reduced review time
  • Speed up finding qualified referees
  • Eliminate the bad luck of being assigned to a biased or overworked referee
  • More diverse feedback
  • Decisions better reflect opinion of the field
Sympoze will also offer…
  • High-quality peer-reviewed scholarship by experts in the field
  • Immediate open-access publication (for pieces that pass the review process)
  • Yearly print volumes for each discipline in traditional book and e-book formats
