I've thought of turning OpenPsych into more than a collection of journals but also a collection of blogs. If the HBD sphere has something in abundance; it's blogs. Now think of Unz.com, it's a predominantly political blog network, but hosts a few scientific blogs. Imagine if we could attract the likes of Razib Khan, Peter Frost, maybe even Steve Sailer (although he straddles the line between political and scientific) at some point. But that may require offering some economic incentives, so leave that for later. We can start from the basics to build up OP blogs. We can host John Fuerst's blog posts, of which there are many, then Emil's, and so on. I don't personally blog but I am more than sure that many good HBD bloggers will appreciate the opportunity to blog under the OP brand (if we build it up first, that is) or be part of a network with many other prominent bloggers. What do you say? Is this a viable project for within the next few years? I am taking inspiration from PLOS blogs for this, but can we build up the infrastructure to host blogs as well as transfer over posts from blogs from all over web?


Your ideas are good. However, I do not want to turn OP into a hub for HDB researchers. That'll dissuade authors of different persuasions to join. Also OP is primarily a journal, and the forum's chief function is that of ensuring a bottom-up kind of peer review, where editors have no or minimal power. Turning OP into a collection of blogs would place bias on the editor's part, making this a top-down process where editors pick blogs and so on, and this is contrary to our philosophy.
I like your idea of improving OP's looks and the way the papers are presented. I think it'll have a not too unremarkable impact on its perception.
