Dan Cohen and writing scholarship on WordPress

Dan Cohen’s latest blog entry highlights WordPress’ ability to write scholarly work online. In light of CHNM’s unveiling of PressForward, it’s pretty exciting to be in the digital history realm right now (good article on PF in the NYT.)

I continue to stress that the mechanism for maintaining peer review and ensuring quality scholarship already exists in the form of regional¬†accreditation¬†and consortium models. It’s a matter of will more than ability that is hampering a move away from traditional publication and towards a digital model.
