Long time ago, we ambitiously tried to have a publication venue associated with the $n$Lab, the Publications of the nLab. The idea was that $n$Lab articles that evolved to a nicely polished and comprehensive stage could give rise to a published hyperlinked article, and conversely, that published articles would induce accompanying $n$Lab pages.
The idea is excellent, save for the minor flaw that it requires time and energy to keep it running.
Last week I met with Prof. Sadok Kallel, managing editor of The Graduate Journal of Mathematics (GJM), which focuses on contributions with an expository aspect (refereed, indexed with MathScieNet & mathreviews). Sadok highlights the parallels between the kind of content that GJM is looking for, and the nature of $n$Lab articles, and suggests to try to have some link between GJM and the $n$Lab.
To start with, authors of $n$Lab articles should feel encouraged to consider submitting content which they have written for the $n$Lab to GJM!
Articles published in GJM that are expository in nature should treat in detail mathematical examples and constructions and shall not linger on the theory. From that point of view, they should preferably include clear, instructive and worked out original examples and/or applications.
It certainly seems that such articles might complement nLab content. Definitely worth exploring some form of tie-in, in my opinion.
