Stolley's Open Access Academic Journal Push Referenced in Nature magazine
Nature magazine cites the journal as allowing "scholars (to) build journal articles incrementally, with each version tracked and open online, available for collaboration and comment throughout." Karl Stolley, associate professor of technical communication, founded and launched Push in October 2012. The journal is dedicated to publishing original research on writing with source code such as building web applications or other written acts that rely on both natural and computer languages. The journal is available open–access, meaning that there are no fees for reading its content; it attempts an open peer–review structure, both pre– and post–publication. Figures such as Ward Cunningham (notable for being the inventor of the wiki) have participated in the review of the journal's initial article submissions, which showcase the kind of participation and knowledge–making made possible by an open review process.
Push is run through GitHub, a web platform typically used for hosting and reviewing source code for computer programs, but reworked by Stolley for academic writing and publication, thus earning the mention in Nature.
