Not one that just lists all the papers, but rather a filtered view. I mentioned it on Twitter and Doug Belshaw pointed me at the new Google/Wordpress collaboration, Annotum – a WordPress theme for creating open access journals. So in the a spirit of DIY, I have created Meta EdTech Journal. The idea is simple – three times a year…
