Thanks to print, the production of knowledge has used journals as a tool of registration, certification, dissemination and preservation. More recently, evaluation has emerged, based around journal prestige and flawed metrics with very negative consequences for research. In the digital world, open access, and in fact open science have become possible, and it is also possible to revisit what a platform should do, what a journal should transmute into – a community voice – and how the archive of science should be organized.
