Certifying Online Research

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I applaud the Chronicle's Gary A. Olsen for looking at the question of recognizing online scholarship, though I would not agree with his proposal to have scholarly societies 'recognize' sites via "a certification process in which a site owner can apply to have a site reviewed and recognized, perhaps for a nominal processing fee." I think thyat what we will find is that societies that seek out and identify worthwhile sites have more credibility than those whose opinions can be purchased. And why need it be a society? It's better to have a collection of individuals - like this newsletter - working independently. Via Barbara Fister.
