researching Chinese propaganda publishing – an Open Access experiment

Matthew Wills's picture

Dear list members,


With others at UC San Diego, I am exploring new ways graduate students and academics can bring Open Access principles to scholarly writing. To this end, I am running an experiment: I have decided to draft the introduction to my dissertation on Chinese propaganda publishing in an open-to-all Google Drive document. Anyone with Internet access can view my developing ideas and leave comments/suggestions. If you are interested in this experiment, please head to to see my work in progress and read more about the project. I would also welcome any thoughts on the premise of the project itself.


Best wishes,
