I’m thrilled…

Ok, this idea I like: PlosOne (via David Weingerger) – an open access, peer review journal which permits readers to annotate, discuss, and rate submitted papers. Quality is assured through a traditional peer review model (authors, however, have to submit a $1250 fee for each article – a concern, I would think, for researchers from countries with limited economic resources – a challenge, since we will increasingly see the future of humanity shaped in what we now classify as “underdeveloped” countries). I would like to see a similar model adopted for research in the learning and technology space. I imagine with a few dedicated Canadians (Stephen, Terry, Norm, and others)…and some key international participants, we could create an online open access elearning journal that revises how we research and share. Any takers? If so, perhaps we can get a conversation started…email me: gsiemens@elearnspace.org.
