Interactive Publications and the Record of Science
8 February 2010, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France.
The Web is, by nature, an interactive environment, yet online journals are mostly static, consistent with their traditional role as a never-changing scholarly record. However, this traditional role is increasingly challenged as browser technologies leap forward, dynamic visualization and presentation tools proliferate, and primary data are linked to research articles. In an important and timely event arranged by ICSTI (the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information), publishers, publishing service providers, librarians, editors, and authors will meet in Paris for a full-day workshop to survey the most exciting and challenging of the new developments and to begin to identify the necessary infrastructure for including interactive content within the record of science. Session topics are (I) Interactive visualizations; (II) Adding value with enriched content and semantic links; (III) The archival problem and infrastructure for solutions; (IV) W(h)ither journals? Speakers include representatives from the Nature Publishing Group, National Library of Medicine, Royal Society of Chemistry, International Union of Crystallography, OECD, Concept Web Alliance, SciVee, British Library, CrossRef, and Cell Press.
Because seats are limited, advance registration is required.
