My latest higher education article for Technology &
, Knowledge
, is now available. The article draws deeply from my previous
blog posts, Linked,
, and The
Future of Academic Publishing

Here are a couple of quotes from
the article:

[T]he system [of academic writing] is fairly clunky. There aren’t easy ways
to tell who the [top scholars] are, nor are there ways to easily find hidden
nuggets of wisdom. . . . Tracking down a new resource from an existing article
or book also is difficult, since readers have to first find the publication
through trial-and-error searching of various databases and then either download
it or track down a print version. Much high-quality writing never sees the light
of day or isn’t cited by anyone because it’s not in the "right place." We can do
better. . . .

If we can figure out how to get beyond academic publishers’ revenue
protection concerns, the world’s body of scholarly research can be available to
anyone with an Internet connection. That’s a goal worth working

Happy reading!
