Postdoc Journal is an Open Access Journal of Postdoctoral Research.  With approximately 120,000 postdocs worldwide, and approximately 90,000 working in the US alone, spread across 3,000 universities and research institutions, postdocs are a major force behind almost all major breakthroughs in many fields of research with their inherent creative and hardworking nature.  Postdoc Journal aims to highlight this fact by providing an exclusive platform to showcase their contributions.  The journal, chalked out to be a monthly publication and set to release on the 20th of each month with at least 10 papers to begin with, publishes research findings in ALL fields postdocs conduct research in.  The journal accepts original research papers, reviews, perspectives, commentaries as well as research highlights.  A research highlight is a 500-word summary of a recent publication in any journal that has an impact on ongoing research in that field.  All submissions go through a conventional peer-review process before being accepted for publication.  The general time-frame from submission to acceptance for review submissions has been less than 6 weeks, with a much smaller time-frame for perspectives, commentaries and research highlights.
