David Wiley & Brent Lambert, Pitch, Nov 27, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Pitch has launched. I'm not sure if the launch is formal yet, but you can access the online magazine and view three articles, including an introductory editorial by David Wiley and Brent Lambert, an article from George Siemens on open source content in education, and one of my articles, The Regina Declaration. Now what's really interesting about Pitch is the peer review system. "Pitch uses a democratic method of peer review where all readers participate in the review process. Instead of sending submitted articles away for 12 months of secret review by three individuals, Pitch allows your peers to review your work. In Pitch everyone 'pitches in' to rate papers submitted to the journal." Kudos to David and Brent for getting this off the ground, and my thanks to them for letting me be a part of it. I look forward to the discussion that will no doubt follow.
