Scientific Findings in a digital world: What is the genuine article? will be an opportunity to 'consider a range of issues including':
- In an age of digital content and communication, does the notion of the scientific ‘article’ remain relevant?
- Is the 300-year-old approach to structuring findings – from abstract to references – still valid in the era of the multi-media research object?
- How should new types of content such as video protocols and embedded datasets be peer-reviewed, and does it matter?
- Will opening access to the outputs of scientific research really improve innovation?
- Does more access to research data and information necessarily mean we are better informed?
- When it comes to communicating research findings, what are the fundamental building blocks and what is the wallpaper?
