Wikigenes joins our experiment in collaborative authoring of standards

Now there is another way to make your contribution to the standards document “Principles for the post-GWAS functional characterisation of risk loci” described in the previous post, automatically becoming a co-author in the process. Wikigenes creator Robert Hoffmann has set up a splash page, introducing the paper and a link to the editable version at Wikigenes.

We do not anticipate problems in assigning authorship and author roles since it is obvious whether you have contributed conceptual input or corrected punctuation. Corresponding author Ian Mills and editor Myles Axton will check and if necessary edit author names and roles for the final version to be submitted for publication after December 20th 2010.

If you have problems with the feed please address your queries to Wikigenes, not to Free Association blog, bearing in mind this is an experiment.

    Dear Axton

    Thank you for mentioning “Wikigenes”.

    I just checked it. I think it is still messy.

    I prefer google more than Wikigenes.
