* A modern academic journal management system.
* US$10/submission is the only cost for peer review. 
* Can be used only to organize peer-review (http://quantum-journal.org/ does that), or as a full publishing platform (http://discreteanalysisjournal.com/ does that).
* Extra features such as indexing, DOI assignment, plagiarism checking, etc, must be provided by other means.
