Knol: A Unit of Knowledge

If you Knol what you're doing, know this: Knol is the way to do it. Scientists, doctors and researchers seem to have taken a shine to it. Here is Google's descripiton:
Knols are meant to be authoritative articles, and, therefore, they have a strong focus on authors and their credentials. We feel that this focus will help ensure that authors get credit for their work, make the content more credible.
Knol has simple web authoring tools that make it easy to collaborate, co-author, and publish.
It has community features as well: Your readers will be able to add comments and rate your article, and, if you want, they'll be able to suggest edits that you can then either accept or reject.
