Today’s Chronicle article about Dan Cohen’s latest, work, PressForward, was music to the eyes. At this time last year I was completing a lit review on the status of “digital scholarship” in academia. One of the sticky spots was how to treat blogs, especially as they do not originate in the gold standard of print, nor are they likely to be seen as legit peer-reviewed work.
My interest in the topic is two-fold: As a budding scholar myself and as an administrator who must find ways to help faculty bring more technology into their teaching. The recognition of digital works as real scholarship is essential for the advancement of academe. It provides incentive for faculty to take risk while evolving our ideas of scholarly publishing.
Bravo to Dan Cohen & peers for their progressive work in this area and the launch of PressForward. Looking forward to how this unfolds and develops.
