    Journals are useful because they have reputations. Good journals almost always publish good science, whereas with less reputable journals it's a crapshoot. So in that respect, journals are useful as an early selection tool.

    Yes, I know this is unfair and makes for intellectual sloppiness.

    The other thing is, the publication-end peer review step. How does that work, precisely, without journals? How is it documented?
