The world-wide web has made journals obsolete: it's better to put papers on a freely available archive and then let boards of top scholars referee them. But how do we get to this system? In math and physics we have the arXiv, but nobody referees those papers. In biology and medicine, a board called the Faculty of 1000 chooses and evaluates the best papers, but there's no archive - they get those papers from traditional journals. Whoops - never mind! Now the Faculty of 1000 has started an archive!
