This project aims towards the creation of a Nature Preceedings 2-3 page review papers, similar to a Bio:Blogs curation of blog posts. The difference is that people who want to participate choose a specific topic of interest and collect / review information from articles and blog posts (in more detail, rather than just a couple of lines and a link to the articles/blog posts). Small groups of people can work on each paper up to a the point where they are considered useful enough to submit to a pre-print server (Nature Precedings) and eventually to a journal that might be interested in the topic. A possible future goal could be to collect related reviews as book chapters that could be packaged in book format.

The idea of creating scientific wiki reviews is also being explored on OpenWetWare in two different sections (Reviews and Open writing projects).
