Editor's Notes

  1. Lines because these interact with each other
  2. Think on own first, then share in pairs and write on doc or on paper
  3. -- from same blog post as quoted on slide
  4. The Winnower: open access publishing where you post, ask for reviews, revise and then can assign a DOI. “The Winnower is an open access online scholarly publishing platform that employs open post-publication peer review.  You guessed it! We think transparency from start to finish is critical in scientific communication.  Our aim is to revolutionize science by breaking down the barriers to scientific communication through cost-effective and transparent publishing for scholars. We hope you will join us!” “instead of attempting to filter work pre-publication we should sort it post-publication.  The Winnower was founded based around this idea of identifying good/bad work openly via post-publication peer review. …post-publication peer means the entire process is transparent from start to finish.  The work is uploaded for all to see and evaluate and so are the reviews.” http://chronicle.com/blognetwork/theubiquitouslibrarian/2015/07/09/the-winnower-a-publishing-platform-for-scholars-an-interview-with-josh-nicholson/ Medium is more like blogging but more find-able b/c more visible and larger network of people
