I am considering using a SE site as an alternative to a scientific journal publication for short results, since it has the advantage of allowing an active feedback from the community.
However, I believe it might be relevant to filter proposals by implementing a validation by administrators before publication (which is usually the role of the editor before passing the manuscript to the referees).
If I create such a site on Area 51, which settings can be chosen in terms of editorial processes ? Could such a pre-validation step be implemented ? How tunable is the power of administrators ?
