Event description

Description

To celebrate the 9th International Open Access Week, the Open Access Team and the Imperial College Central Library are showcasing a series of events about open access, data, education and research.

This event is open to staff and students of Imperial College London. Please sign-up using your Imperial College email address.


AUTHOREA: Making the process of writing scientific papers more collaborative, efficient and transparent.

2 hours: talk, Q&A and refreshments.

Most tools that scientists use for the preparation of scholarly manuscripts, such as Microsoft Word and LaTeX, function offline and do not account for the born-digital nature of research objects. Also, 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 natively offer readers a dynamic, interactive experience with an article’s full text, images, data, and code–paving the road to increased data sharing, data reuse, research reproducibility, and Open Science.

Optional: please bring along your laptop for a short activity.
