Editor's Notes

  • Researchers communicate differently to other people. Central to this is the social contract of science.
    We agree to disseminate our work widely, allowing others to validate it and build upon it.
    The best and arguably only way to do this effectively is OA, so we are an OA publisher.
    If you don’t do this, it can be termed scientific malpractice, and it applies not only to results.
  • All factors of successful data publication
    Need to ensure authors motivated
  • The Ubiquity Network:
    Access to a large peer review pool (100,000+)
    Content cascading
    Editor sourcing
  • We want to include presses from the developing world in our network too.
    Flying in in organised formation is 70% more efficient than flying solo.
    Often when a bird falls out of formation, others stay back with it until it can catch up.
    No bird gets left behind.
