As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Changing Peer Review - Again

Well, the last time I wrote about this topic was back in October (see Scholarship, Open Journals and Peer Review) and prior to that you'd have to go back to June (see Does Academic Publishing Need To Be Revised?and Some More Items on Academic Publications). I had hoped that Nate, Johannes, Heather, Scott, and others might join in th conversation again at that point, but that didn't really happen.

We've talked about this in the past, does peer review need to be changed and, if it does, how can we use the technology that we currently have available to us as we are changing it. These are interesting questions and, even more interesting was I came across this piece which provides a different prospective on the issue.
Not so much a different viewpoint, but I get the sense that the author isn't an instructional technology / educational technology person (which I thinkis great that the discussion is expanding beyond our community).

So, what do you think? What does this add to our discussion that we have been having? Anything? Nothing?
