Andy Maloney’s Open Science Biophysics Dissertation

Andy Maloney, a leader in open science, is embracing the open philosophy all the way. He has decided to write his dissertation as it evolves as an open science document. First chapter draft is here. Go there to witness the first fully open dissertation ever.

Yes, every version, every draft, every correction, everything will be posted there. Members of the wiki can also write him comments and suggestions. This is a fantastic idea, as this is the first time others can see how  a dissertations actually develops. This will help both experts in the field, and graduate students that want to see how is the dissertation-writing process.
