The authors present Liquid Journal, a dissemination model and website that extends from the notion of a traditional scientific journal to overcome the problem of information overload in the scientific community. They detail Liquid Journal's concepts, methods, and supporting platform. They also focus on the issues related to having access to relevant scientific content, such as narrowing down the discovery process to reliable sources (venues and authors) when dealing with vast amounts of information.
