This point from Claudia is important -- «keep in mind
that we are not
talking about a traditional journal here but about "a new research journal
about Wikis and about research done by using Wikis"» -- however, I think it
needs expansion, or we'll just end up with some kind of turn-crank solution.
To reframe that:
What's NOT going to be traditional about this journal?
what's your opinion on this, Joe & everyone?
it will be non-traditional because it addresses not only wiki *software* but - see the
second about -
"a new research journal about Wikis and about research done by using Wikis"
the "research done by using Wikis" is non-traditional because it can be research
in any field and articles
would address many different research cultures, not just software-centered ones.
articles are not "submitted" to the journal's editors but written openly on
the journals' platform (and then
maybe sent to a review process elsewhere as well as opening up to public review here)
