This could be a useful project in that it might encourage people to check out such journals. Many libraries in the USA carry at least one of the big 5, especially those that have a genealogy section. I would encourage people to regularly read articles in such journals. You can learn a lot about researching from them.
In addition to the "Nutmegger" there are a number of good journals from other State or local societies. The "Magazine of Virginia Genealogy" is another well written/edited journal.
Back to the proposal. Do you have an idea of how the information would be presented/managed?
Great idea, Barry! Just for reference: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Starting_a_Project
I just created a new post to flesh out the idea: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/812553/implementing-the-journals-project I think the assignments could be very minimal -- i.e., pick a single new article and try to get it added as a source to a profile for someone mentioned in the article. Or pick a new journal issue and create a freespace page with a table of contents for it.
Sounds interesting. I could help with the Australian arm of the project, depends on what "monitoring" means and what sort of feedback the Project would need to make it a success.
I suppose the first step is to identify the Australian Journals, to start off the list could include the following, but would need to be expanded to include other states in Australia, as my focus to date has the Eastern seaboard:-
Genealogical Society of Victoria https://www.gsv.org.au/
Family History Connections https://www.familyhistoryconnections.org.au/
Society of Australian Genealogists https://www.sag.org.au/
