Editor's Notes

  • This is for Stuart from the Royal Society
  • All factors of successful data publication
    Need to ensure authors motivated

  • ----- Meeting Notes (07/03/2014 12:07) -----
    concerns about also possibility of submission fees
    societites should break down their part of the fee
  • The Ubiquity Network:
    Access to a large peer review pool (100,000+)
    Content cascading
    Editor sourcing
  • 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.
