A decentralised peer-reviewed publication platform

Mon, Sep 25, 2017

It’s no secret that academic publishing is dysfunctional. Much has been written about theĀ problemsĀ and potentialĀ solutions.

A friend and I have begun gathering our own thoughts on how to “fix” academic publishing. We want to create

Rvu (Review) - a decentralised peer-reviewed publication platform

We made thisĀ little slide deckĀ outlining our fledgling ideas and enabling technologies like blockchain, IPFS and machine learning.

These are of courseĀ not new ideasĀ (is there ever such a thingĀ šŸ¤”Ā ) but we are inspired that we were not alone.

If you like this idea and would like to collaborate with us on it, please get in touch.
