Date: Monday, May 23, 2016

Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm (EDT)

Location: Virtual

Registration: http://www.nfais.org/index.php?option=com_mc&view=mc&mcid=72&eventId=507117&orgId=nfais&recurringId=0

What's Covered:

Do-it-yourself (DIY) scholarly publishing has been on a growth path in recent years, driven in part by the advent of the cloud and by many entrepreneurial companies that have developed workable DIY publishing platforms.

While it's still early in the life span of DIY scholarly publishing, to what extent will DIY evolve into a disruptor to traditional publishing? Or can DIY act as a disruptor while working in partnership with traditional publishing?

In this NFAIS Webinar, Monday, May 23, join Authorea's Alberto Pepe, Peerwith's Joris van Rossum, PhD, and Ivo Verbeek, M.Sc., and MIT Press's Bill Trippe, each of whom will examine DIY publishing as a new link being deployed with traditional publishers to serve the needs of scholarly authors. These services are working to help researchers accelerate the dissemination of their scholarly output. Our expert presenters will discuss:

·         New tools and services that enable researchers to collaborate, share and connect with one another on their terms

·         Challenges researchers face with traditional publishing models

·         What DIY means to authors and how publishers can support a more collaborative environment to foster transparent scientific discovery

·         How Peerwith integrates with Mendeley to give authors the ability to bolster research collaboration and publication

·         How author-initiated content can be integrated into the next steps of the publishing workflow

·         Whether a more openly collaborative environment reflects a shift toward more value-added collaborations between all stakeholders

Alberto Pepe, Co-founder, Authorea (NFAIS 2016 Startup Shootout Winner)
