Seb’s Open Research has published Personal knowledge publishing and its uses in research.
In this document, I analyze an emerging form of knowledge sharing that I call personal knowledge publishing. Personal knowledge publishing has its roots in a practice known as “weblogging” that has been rapidly spreading on the World Wide Web over the last three years. It is a new form of communication that many expect will change the way people work and collaborate, especially in areas where knowledge and innovation play an important role.
I’ve scanned the article and it looks like a very detailed and thoughtful piece on what weblogs are and how they can assist in academic research. I’ll definitely be going back for a more thorough read.
