Editor's notes this week

Keeping a track of what's happening for writers

Monday, December 3

  • The second article resulting from our interviews went live today. Shan Wang at the Nieman Lab was especially interested in the openness which we trying to install across all the processes on the platform. Read her article here.

Tuesday, December 4

  • Congratulations to Rhiannon Davies who has completed the first article here in response to the European Union commission. Please do read and review it here. Any comments? We'll soon have full functionality on commenting but, in the meantime, get in touch via feedback@publish.org.

Wednesday, December 6

  • Congratulations to Christopher Morton who initially pitched his interview with historian and former US diplomat Peter Galbraith into the open 'democracy' channel. Please do read and review the final version here. Any comments? We'll soon have full functionality on commenting but, in the meantime, get in touch via feedback@publish.org.
  • If you signed up to Publish.org recently, you may have received an email from me in the past couple of days. Our systems alerted me to the fact that some people have some work sitting in a ‘private’ status on the platform and so I was contacting people to see if there's any problem. Please do get in touch if you do have any questions and the Facebook group for writers can be useful on that.

Thursday, December 7

  • Interested to see that news of Publish.org has spread to Germany! Thanks to the site Piqd for this write up about the platform

Friday, December 8

  • If you're logged into the platform, you can now vote in support of pitches that you particularly like. Give it a try! You can see how many other people have voted in the information panel at the top of the article.
  • We're preparing for our 'end of year' editorial board meeting next week. One of the topics under discussion will be what the next big commissioning topic should be. Any thoughts? We'd love to hear them.

Last week's notes are here.
