>Every researcher, writer or artist deserves a fair consideration to be
>published. Scientific Journals International (SJI) provides a one-stop
>efficient forum for publishing research and creative work from all
>disciplines. Our open access electronic journals will be available
>free of charge to over 800 million Internet users from around the
>world.  Unlike other online journals we do not limit access through
>registration or subscription. There is no other journal in the world
>that aims to have this scope.
>
>This initiative is driven by an overriding passion to assist
>researchers, writers and artists to cope with the publish or perish
>reality that has been created by the policies of the academia and
>funding agencies. According to several surveys, a large majority of
>authors and researchers cite slow review process and publication
>delays in the current system as a major obstacle to their publishing
>objectives.  Many have also expressed concerns about the fairness and
>integrity of the peer review process in traditional scholarly
>publishing. Some scholars have argued that there is a need to free the
>publication process for broader and fairer access.
>
>Scientific Journals International (SJI) is the first global initiative
>that intends to accomplish this objective.  Due to its massive
>database and electronic archival capacity, SJI will maintain a
>significantly higher acceptance rate for research papers and creative
>works.  We sincerely believe that researchers, writers and artists who
>have devoted months or years to a research/creative project, should
>not be shut out of the publication world simply because they did not
>follow certain procedural or stylistic rules and guidelines or because
>their work did not fit in.  All traditional journals have very rigid
>stylistic or procedural policies that unduly create artificial
>barriers and in effect retard innovation and creativity.
>
>Scientific Journals International (SJI) will maintain minimal
>procedural and stylistic rules, and will accept papers that follow any
>style manual such as APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.  A fair peer-reviewed
>evaluation system will be used to select papers for publication. SJI
>will maintain a rapid electronic submission, review and publication
>process.  Additionally, we do not set the same limitations on the
>length of the article as other traditional and online journals do.
>Another useful feature of our searchable electronic journals is that
>readers will be able to search quickly and easily for full-text
>articles by particular keywords.  Our capability for perpetual future
>accessibility and preservation will also be extremely valuable to both
>authors and readers. 
>
>All accepted and published articles will remain in our databases and
>archives in perpetuity for worldwide exposure and visibility.  Each
>electronic article will be encoded with html meta-tags which allow for
>more sophisticated searching techniques. The information which is
>contained in an article can be intelligently structured for
>bibliographic access.

>Please feel free to forward this email to your institution's faculty
