Wiki research articles

In an attempt to make research even more accessible, Open Medicine have discussed the possible role of Wikis as a publishing platform.  The idea being that once published, an article can be updated and edited openly by other contributors.

Their first attempt at this was published this month; second-line therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled with metformin monotherapy: A systematic review and mixed treatment comparisons meta-analysis, by Brendan McIntosh and colleagues.  Why not have a look and join in?

The idea of a perpetual research article has been investigated by Andy Tattersall within HEDS, so if you want to have a go, drop him a line.
