The last 18 months have seen a number of new and interesting open access journals being started (for example PeerJ, F1000 Research, Elementa, e-Life, Cureus etc). Each of these start-ups have learned valuable lessons about the current journal market and how to promote and develop their new journals to the wider world. This panel of three representatives from PeerJ, F1000 Research and Elementa will briefly outline some of the lessons they have learnt as well as their future plans for each product. An open discussion with Q&A will then be moderated by Greg Tananbaum during which specific issues will be further explored.
