The internet allows for a much more powerful system than the current journal system, much more powerful than even an open journal system.
Some things I'd like to see in a unified online open system
  • Hyperlinking between papers
  • Discussion threads for papers
  • Collaborative mark ups of papers, so that difficult papers can be communally dissected and fleshed out, or so that students can work through a paper and provide a mark up to ease the reading for other students
  • An ongoing wiki for every subfield, detailing current outstanding problems, papers to read to get up to speed, most recent progress, etc, as well as curating accepted knowledge. Wikis should also be able to be marked up by students, so that difficult material can be broken down and fleshed out for the sake of other students. — TheEzEzz
