We have https://dokie.li/ . We can expand on that.
Maybe along the lines of "what is it like... and how is it different"?

@melvincarvalho dokieli is not only for researchers! Does it stop you or anyone from writing any (other) type of document? What makes it a "research" document? I'd like dokieli to support the features that researchers use, but none of which is something prevents or limits someone from writing blog articles or a "data-driven journal" articles.

or lists or meeting notes or brainstorming or specs
documentation, 'about me', microblog posts, ..

I want to keep the UI minimal in a sense that it does not turn into Google Docs, or full featured like a desktop Word editor.

if you don't want your thing to look like a research article right now you write your own stylesheet... but one day maybe dokieli will have a bunch of themes to choose from

I think the main thing that gets people hung up on dokieli being for academic 'papers' is the default stylesheet :p
by default I mean the one most commonly seen in the wild currently

Where the home page e.g. says "dokieli is being developed as part of the Linked Research initiative. “
it maybe needs to say — its vsiion of research result, analysis and data all being produced interactively on teh web and seamlessly linked to and from papers; and also the academic process of peer review being completely open on the web of data and decentralized and standardized
It isn’t just a document editor, it allows different people to annotate and keeps track of who tey are and the conversations.
(true?)

@timbl True! Factored in your suggestions and updated the homepage. Thanks.

looks good! I think the peer review system seems to me (as an outsider) a little bit like a web of trust also

I agree. It is orthogonal. Fundamentally there is not much difference between a blog post comment and a peer-review. There are good and bad feedback in either direction.

yes its interesting, tho I think in general academic stuff is by default global (but sometimes within closed group)
or perhaps it's ACL'd and some are trying to make it global
ie dokeili could facilitate that by lowering the cost of that of an HTTP connection
