Abstract

The peer review process that has been in place for many years has recognized shortcomings. The Internet provides a means for changing this process. This paper offers a more transparent and inclusive design for peer review referred to as open knowledge creation. The design proposed utilizes Google knol and group services. The open knowledge creation design consists of four stages: creation, review/revision, evaluation/adoption, and publication. It is intended to offer existing or new journals an alternative to the traditional peer review of research.
