at literacies we struggled with the question of how to peer review in a way that would attract academic writers but not turn off practitioner writers. this cartoon sums up our feelings exactly.

This came out of a conversation I had with someone about how to gather and 'publish' my learnings from this site / action research. We got talking about all the hoops I'd need to prep for, for I could apply to, etc. Then I though, 'Hey! I am being published! Maybe I'll just post the paper online, advertise it here and there, and see what happens.

That led to a new discussion about the internet's potential to undermine the universities claim to control 'valid' knowledge and research... Don't get me started!!!!
