  13. 13. right nowthe world of scholarlycommunication ischanging
  14. 14. bring you up to dateon three areas
  15. 15. 1. Public Access to papers
  16. 16. doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1001235.g001
  17. 17. • for whom are we doing research andbuilding our research infrastructure?• what do we want our next generationinfrastructure to look like?• what should be the role of scholarlysocieties? of commercial publishers?how important is it to preserve currentbusiness models?
  18. 18. 1. Public Access to papers
  19. 19. 2. Papers as Data
  20. 20. • what may we do with a scientific paper?we can read it with our eyes. May we readit with our computers? Often againstsubscription terms of use, and in somecountries it has been against copyright.• who can analyze it? for what purposes?after how many hoops? using whatstandards? through what interfaces?

  23. 23. 1. Public Access to papers2. Papers as Data
  24. 24. 3. Dataset Archiving
  25. 25. << Journal >> requires,as a condition for publication,that data supporting the results in thepaper should be archived in anappropriate public archive...
  26. 26. 1. Public Access to papers2. Papers as Data3. Dataset Archiving
  27. 27. Right timeThese issues are HOT.
  28. 28. iEvoBioRight place
  29. 29. iEvoBio attendees areright in the middleof all of this
  30. 30. very well situated to see the changes,understand them, guide them
  31. 31. • I’ll cover the first two changes quickly,then spend a bit more time onData Archiving because that’s where I thinkievobio is in the most unique position,plus I have some fresh-off-the-pressesdata to share with you!
  32. 32. 1. Public Access to papers
  33. 33. • Real evolution papers out where thepublic can read them: help the publiclearn what real science looks like.
  34. 34. • Openly available data that is describedonly in a subscription-basedpublication is a problem.
  35. 35. • ievobio community includes strongsocieties and great OA advocates.So what should the journal of the futurelook like?How should it be funded?Who should own the work?How would you like to be able to build onit?• You are the right place!
  36. 36. 2. Papers as Data
  37. 37. • Tracking and valuing attribution todatasets as suggested through JDAPrequires papers as data
  38. 38. • Easier and less expensive datasetcuration? Metadata suggestions fromfull text requires full text mining.
  39. 39. • iEvoBio attendees have the programmingchops and the informatics mindset tounderstand the potential and inform theinfrastructure.• You are great people to champion andcontribute to these changes.
  40. 40. 3. Dataset Archiving

  42. 42. • this means the Evolution and Ecologycommunities have cutting edgeexperience with some of theproblems, and are well poised to startconsidering solutions.
  43. 43. Study of attitudes, experiences- online questionnaire- corresponding authors- 40 journals- 3 yearsData collection ongoing...this is a sneak peak!

  51. 51. we need to fix that.
  52. 52. Change the world.
  53. 53. Why?
  54. 54. • the environment is changing. Fact.We must adapt.• So that our values are reflected in theoutcome• competitive advantage
  55. 55. How?
  56. 56. • figure out what bugs you• learn. blog while you learn. learning lunches.• discuss, write, speak, blog, tweet.• colleagues, coauthors, students,journals, conference organizers• build something.• make principled choices. Stand up for them.
  57. 57. here’s how I’m doing it

  60. 60. $$$
  61. 61. CLOSED
  62. 62. furthermore
  63. 63. We bleed for each data point.Why would we hand that all overfor someone who never sets footin the field and then publishesour work at our expense?
  64. 64. I am worried about a rise in"data vultures" or "arm-chairfield ecologists"
  65. 65. Data took 3 years to collect andcompile.If someone wants this type ofdata, they should go out andcollect their own.
