Yelp for Academic Journals

This such a great idea, I can't believe no one has thought it before! This website lets you leave reviews for journals you've worked with. So (to name a couple different experiences I've had) whether the editor was prompt in responding to questions, or the review process took over a year and the paper kept getting lost in the shuffle, you can finally share that information with the masses. Huzzah!

Though all reviews are anonymous, they ask you to set up an account - this allows them to make sure no one misuses the system. They also provide a few basic rules:
  1. Accurately report your own experiences.
  2. Do not use anyone’s name.
  3. No links.
  4. Stay on topic.
Basically, don't be a troll and stay on target:
