This article tries to show the advantages of an alternative way for the publication of manuscripts, that is, the Metajournal. It is based on the following idea: authors of scientific journals can submit an abstract to this facility and editors and referees can routinely scan the Metajournal to find out good manuscripts. On the hand they can get in touch with the authors to publish the manuscript and on the other hand the author can freely choose the most adequate journal in which publish his or her research. As a result of this, a new role may appear in science, that is, the journal scanner or journal scout. However, The metajournal can also be used for those manuscripts that were rejected by journals. The editor of the journal that rejects a manuscript has the possibility to send it to The Metajournal, in this way it is available not only for editors and referees but for everybody.
