Authorea: Reinventing the Scientific Article


Main speaker : Karolina Mosiadz and Nathan Jenkins, from Authorea Date : 10/11/2016 at 02:00 pm Location : Retrovirus room – LWOFF (22) ,Institut Pasteur, Paris


It has been said that in order to cure cancer, we must first cure research. First, we need to improve how researchers work and make breakthrough discoveries by tackling one of the most important parts of the research cycle, which is as important as research itself: scientific communication. The big step is to reinvent the scientific article – the main vehicle of scientific dissemination – that hasn’t changed in format and scope since the birth of the scientific method.

Most authoring tools in use today are not designed for collaboration and as scientific collaborations grow in size, research transparency and the attribution of scholarly credit are at stake. In this talk, we will show how Authorea allows scientists to collaboratively write rich data-driven manuscripts on the web: articles that would offer readers a dynamic, interactive experience with integrated text, images, data, and code–paving the road to increased data sharing, data reuse, research reproducibility, and open science.
