New Creation Journal Call for Papers
I'd also like to see perhaps a non-peer-reviewed resource for Creationists who don't have the time to publish in a refereed journal. I know of many who would love to share their findings, but don't want to go through the pain of peer-review just to be rejected. Obviously such a journal would wind up having a good mix of wheat and chaff, but I think it might be necessary, considering the amount of ideas and research out there and the lack of publishing facilities.
The problem is that there isn't currently a good publishing model for Creationists. Traditional scientific journals have the authors pay for publication, at what are (to me) very expensive prices. Creation researchers are usually researching on their own dime, not with government grants, so they cannot pay publication fees. It's a dilemma to be sure.
