Abandoning an Experiment

Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed, Aug 22, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Rice University closes its online journal and academics are searching for explanations. "Like a conventional university press, RUP would, through the work of its publisher, continue to seek out and recruit internal and external projects that live up to its mission of modeling the future of scholarship. A traditional peer review process would be applied to the evaluation of these projects, however unconventional their form (a multimedia publication, geo-spatially organized repository, a print/digital hybrid 'augmented' book). But RUP would also serve as the completion and publication site for the most innovative locally produced (via Rice's research centers and institutes) projects, subject to precisely the same peer review controls."
