Virtual Journals

Labels replaced folders in my mailbox, feedreader and (I am looking forward) in my folders: a Call for paper can now both be Important, about Social Network and related to a travel to the USA.  The same idea applies to the academic papers I read: one can both be from someone in my lab, relevant for Econometric issues and spot-on as an example in my coming draft. The same idea should apply to journals as labels of those papers: a paper should be both part of Science because it’s a major step, and The European Journal for Labor Economics, because that’s what it’s about. Here is a very interesting idea on how to make it happen:

If you have grad students handy, do you think you could try that? I’m suggesting a 10 papers per quater threshold, with a relevance constraint — though I have to confess it doesn’t appear to be that necessary, as students have limited time and focused interests.
