Yeah, but I notice they don't allow comments on their article, much less allow us to edit it.
Sometime Editor in Chief of The Shakespeare Drawn & Quarterly
It might take a day, but most articles are ported over to the associated ArtsBlog
, where you can comment.
QUOTE(From the cited article)
Mixing traditional and new methods, the journal posted online four essays not yet accepted for publication, and a core group of experts — what Ms. Rowe called “our crowd sourcing” — were invited to post their signed comments on the Web site MediaCommons, a scholarly digital network. Others could add their thoughts as well, after registering with their own names. In the end 41 people made more than 350 comments, many of which elicited responses from the authors. The revised essays were then reviewed by the quarterly’s editors, who made the final decision to include them in the printed journal, due out Sept. 17.
Note that the authors are obliged to stand behind their reviews. No masquerade ball, and no baleeting the other guy's comments.
