About the Journal

Journal of Open Source Developments [2395-6704(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2014. The basic principle for open source developments is that by sharing source code, developers cooperate under a model of systematic peer review, and take advantage of parallel debugging that leads to innovation and rapid advancement.
