Dear GeoPython subscriber,
The Journal of Open Source Software is a recently created, developer-friendly journal for research software packages. It is fully open, free and community led. Peer reviews are done in the open, on GitHub. See http://joss.theoj.org
We have one submission titled "Advanced viewshed analysis: a Quantum GIS plug-in for the analysis of visual landscapes" for which we've not been able to locate a reviewer after 12 days — this is longer than normal for us! Here is the submission (via a GitHub Issue): https://github.com/openjournals/joss-reviews/issues/32
And here is a related blog post from the software author: http://zoran-cuckovic.from.hr/landscape-analysis/visibility/?ckattempt=1
Peer reviews are aimed at the software and check: installation, documentation, statement of need, tests, community guidelines, etc. The paper itself is a one-page summary. http://joss.theoj.org/about#reviewer_guidelines
If any list subscriber would volunteer to review, or forward this request on to their network, we would be most grateful.
Regards, L. A. Barba p.s. And do consider submitting your open-source software to JOSS.
