Descriptions: Frontiers was launched in 2007 by scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of  Technology in a grassroots initiative.  Frontiers is an open-access, scholarly, primarily scientific publisher, producing 26 community-driven journals with growing impact factors, and with more than 25,000 high-impact researchers on its editorial boards. Frontiers is notable for a democratic system of peer review, the details of which can be examined under the "About" section. Authors with accepted articles who demonstrably cannot bear the cost of publication can apply to the Frontiers Research Foundation for a grant to waive some or all author fees. Waivers are dependent on the World Bank economic status of the author's country. Many video lectures are posted in a keyword-searchable, subject-browse interface. Read abstracts of about 180 downloadable e-books, which can be purchased for a negligible fee. The Frontiers Community part of the site is home to an image bank, an international conference/events schedule, a blogging platform with numerous active blogs, and a jobs board. Authors, editors and reviewers come from prestigious institutions worldwide, many of them from the Texas Medical Center.
