If you could reinvent scholarly communication from scratch, what would it look like for you?

How research is performed, disseminated and communicated is currently undergoing a number of exciting developments that could change the landscape forever.

Scholarly publishing is experiencing substantial changes: over the last decades publishing has gone from print to online, Open Access journals launched at the turn of the century aiming to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the internet and experimental findings and medical evidence are now accessible to new and broader audiences.

While the journal article has traditionally represented the final step in the publication process and the currency for research assessment, research outputs can also encompass data, software, tools or educational materials. In addition, the increase in preprint use and discussions about ongoing or published research in social media mean that research communication is no longer the exclusive realm of peer-reviewed journals.
