This webinar is targeted at researchers in all scholarly disciplines, interested in sharing their research in a more open, collaborative, and impactful manner.

The format of science papers and articles now have hardly changed since the 17th century, even though research methods and published content have evolved immensely. Why do scientists produce innovative modern-day research, but still publish it in a 400-year-old format? What can we do to produce scientific articles ‘of the future’ that better serve the global, collaborative, and data-rich science of the 21st century?

Alberto Pepe, Senior Director, Strategy and Innovation, Atypon and Matteo Cavalleri, Publisher, Wiley will be discussing Wiley’s vision of the scientific article, and how preprints, interactive figures, multimedia elements and code integration are innovating scholarly publications.

Key highlights:

  • Wiley/Atypon’s initiatives to bring executable/interactive articles to journals
  • How integration of preprint servers with journal submission systems makes published research more impactful
  • How the “article of the future” will be more collaborative, open, and reproducible

Please note that certificates will be issued to participants who attended the live session.
