Editor's Notes

  1. This is for Stuart from the Royal Society
  2. All factors of successful data publication Need to ensure authors motivated
  3. ----- Meeting Notes (07/03/2014 12:07) ----- concerns about also possibility of submission fees societites should break down their part of the fee
  4. The Ubiquity Network: Access to a large peer review pool (100,000+) Content cascading Editor sourcing
  5. 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.
