I recommend to your attention the several kinds of online publication
exemplified on the Open Semiotics Resource Center, www.semioticon.com.

Note, for example, the Semiotics Institute Online, a structure for
publication of courses on a variety of topics in semiotics. "The
courses are delivered in the form of eight lectures by qualified
specialists who volunteer the sharing of their knowledge in a
didactic format aimed at graduate students. The instructors can be
directly contacted by email by those who wish to undertake further
research under their guidance. The instructors are free to decide, on
a case by case basis, under what conditions they can agree to do so."
Apparently a wide variety of arrangements have been made.

The Semioticon Commons gathers a variety of essays by "those engaged
in the production of knowledge relevant to semiotic inquiry. (A paper
of mine found its way there.) The Public Journal of Semiotics is a
peer-reviewed online publication. Several other outlets, gatherings
and pointers are to be found.

It's worth noticing that for a field like semiotics, which has no
hope of and no ambition for an even vaguely bounded set of critical
keywords, such a Resource Center is essential -- a fact easy to
overlook in the age of Google. For semiotics, with little hope of and
perhaps, among the enlightened, little ambition for
departmentalization, the Center offers a practical way of conducting
its life-of-the-mind. Its vision of international scholarship and
means for seeing that it happens are to be warmly commended, don't you think?
