New Journal - Sociological Science

Recently I've been talking quite a lot with colleagues about how we need a new sociology journal  that takes advantage of the digital medium to publish quickly, counteract the frailty of the current refereeing conventions, allow genuine debate, corrections and refutations to see the light of day...yada, yada, yada.... Well, while we have been talking somebody has just gone out and done it. Sociological Science will go live in the Autumn of 2013. They have a high class editorial team, which is a key ingredient for making a success of this sort of thing and the whole setup signals credibility. Live long and prosper! Hopefully it will be one small nail in the coffin of  journal conventions that lead to this sort of thing.
