Wikis as tools to publish scholarly workflows


While science can be regarded as a wiki, wikis can in turn be used for publishing and archiving scholarly workflows along all steps of the research cycle - i.e. for planning, recording, documenting and otherwise describing scientific research, optionally in a collaborative manner - thereby highlighting science as a process and scientists working on a given topic as a community.

Compared to traditional PDF-based publishing, a wiki (understood here as a collaboratively editable system of hyperlinked documents with a public version history) provides a wider range of possibilities in terms of perpetual public peer review, contextualization, semantic annotation and other forms of web-based enhancement, along with updatability and integration with interactive and other time-variant media.
