"Paperity": an aggregator for all open-source science journals
Here’s a major proposal by Marc Wojnarski, and Debra Hanken Kurtz, for a “Paperity”, a repository of all open-access (or open source) science and medical papers, without paywall, with major description here.
The process would take “green” papers and sift them into “gold’, after unduplication and aggregation. The repository would have a wiki-like organization and internal review process. It’s not clear if it might become part of Wikipedia (now in San Francisco), but that would sound likely eventually.
The project will be seeking grants and has applied for the Open Science Prize. It will also look for Wiki editors.
