Our objectives
PEERS has been in development since October 2018. Thanks to the support of our partners, we can develop a completely free platform to support the opening of research.
1
Offer a suite of free tools integrated with each other
Develop free, accessible and optimized software for academics.
2
Publish open source code
Thanks to an open API system, website owners will be able to take elements from PEERS and integrate them into their own platform.
3
Scientific publishing for everyone
Small teams, decentralized networks, juniors researchers and developing countries.
Keep control of your publications
You control the license with which you publish, you can archive works published elsewhere under the same conditions as archiving sites, and you can export your documents in many formats to keep them on your personal machine.
Our goal is independance
Whenever possible we use independent cloud providers (Scaleway in France, Render.com for Frankfurt), and use open source technologies. We develop our own independant ressources when they do not currently exist.
We are at your disposal
A team of engineers from Aix-Marseille University is available every day to help you with site navigation or in case of problems. Please contact them here in case of need
