Free Neuropathology is not just another open-access online journal. It is a new type of journal edited and published by scientists working in the field. We do not have any financial interests, and we strongly feel that the huge amount of money currently spent for increasing the profit of publishers should be better invested into science. We believe that the usual activities of publishers such as copyediting, layout, hosting of articles, maintenance of the website and promotion could and should be overtaken by scientists in order to restitute scientific freedom. There is no article processing fee and no paywall -- the journal is free for everyone ("Diamond Open Access"). We try to reduce technicalities to a minimum. This grassroots development is managed by enthusiastic neuroscientists and it may be the future of publishing.
