Wanted – low cost system for publishing an #OpenAccess journal

Well, I figure, if I am going to write blog posts about academic publishing, why not post them here, rather than at my “normal” blog.  One area of great interest to many in academic publishing is in how one can publish a new journal at low cost  – and yet have the journal be Open Access.  Although there is a lot of chatter about this topic, I figured I would use social media to get some additional ideas in this area.  So I posted a request to Twitter yesterday about this and have gotten a decent diversity of responses.  I have created a Storify summary of these responses. Any other ideas or suggestions would be welcome.

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
