Does our field need a new journal?

If we would like to consider founding a journal I’d like to bring everyone's attention to the MDPI group, https://www.mdpi.com/

I happen to be on the editorial board of one of their journals (it’s called Entropy), which has built for itself a pretty decent reputation and (obviously, since otherwise, I would not have deigned to join it) a pretty decent editorial board. It used to be considered a predatory journal but in fact, it is no more predatory than Elseviers or Springer or … and actually it is rather well organized. Some of its journals are now being “subscribed to” by almost all Dutch university libraries, and scientists at those universities don’t need to pay the publication fee.

Does our field need a dedicated journal? Or does it actually already have one? Please discuss...
