Knowledge Blog

Knowledge Blog that is investigating a new light-weight way of publishing scientific academic and technical knowledge on the web where you can read about current events.The ProblemScientific and academic publishing is a painful process for authors reviewers and readers alike. No one really benefits from the current system which grew because of the expense of producing printing and distributing books. The internet and the web technologies have changed this enormously but still the uptake within scientific and academic publishing has been slow and left much of the existing system in place; the reason for this is that some parts of the system are good: explicit authorship peer-review and the ability to archive are the main ones.We need a new solution that removes the annoyances of the current system while keeping the advantages. The solution is already available; we just need to use it in a different way. Blogs and blog technology has been designed to allow people to discuss share and disseminate their opinion in a simple and light-weight way. Adding a little formality to this and we have a journal.
