Overlay Journal

Definition: Open access electronic journals that collect and curate articles available from other sources (typically preprint servers, such as arXiv). Article curation may include (post-publication) peer review or editorial selection. Overlay journals do not publish novel material; rather, they organize and collate articles available in existing repositories.
