Collaborative publishing

A once rare but increasingly fashionable Web 2.0 form of group authorship often combined with self-publishing. Normally, authors use web-based tools like wikis to produce collaborative content that often is then made freely available for others to use (through open source publishing) but with a Creative Commons licence. This shares similarities with but is not the same as traditional joint authorship, in which multiple authors write, exchange and critique each other’s text (the method used to produce our book, for instance).

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on reasons for self-publishing.
