I think this a good idea and would be a very good service to all
interested in this field. The problem is that we all are busy with running
our journals, but maybe we can setup a portal which more or less runs by
its own. A while ago we built a portal to German online journals and their
reviews <http://www.lirez.de>. But there all journals have to fill in the
metadata by hand. Nowadays we could use rss feeds and the portal could
aggregate them.
