The Future of Online (Academic) Publishing - Presentation to the ISMTE August 2009

The Future of Online (Academic) Publishing - Presentation to the ISMTE August 2009

The presentation and audio from a presentation I made to the ISMTE (www.ismte.org) at their 2009 annual meeting in Baltimore. The topic of the talk was "What is the Future of Online Publishing" and I tried to keep it rather general (and vague!). The talk is directed at an audience of people who think about journals from the publishing side of the business , but it will be of interest to a wider audience as well.

Let's Have an Awesome Time Publishing Science

Let's Have an Awesome Time Publishing Science

This is a presentation, with audio, on PLoS ONE (http://www.plosone.org) and to some extent PLoS, given to a conference at UCSF called "Let's Have an Awesome Time Doing Science" (http://awesomescience.wordpress.com/) – an interesting blend of 'regular' conference and unconference.

In this talk I go into some of our motivations and the reasons for our editorial criteria; quite a bit of detail on the PLoS Article-Level Metrics program (http://article-level-metrics.plos.org/); showed some sneak peaks of some upcoming features and finished up by demonstrating some of the power of Open Access in a world of interlined databases.

In my opinion the presentation was... awesome!
