Scientific Publishing: Where we are and where we need to go

Publishing allows new results to be disseminated throughout the scientific community.  Papers also are evidence of productivity and are used in evaluated scientists for grants, jobs, and promotions.  To advance efforts to improve scholarly scientific publishing, I founded a non-profit organization called ASAPbio (Accelerating Science and Publication in Biology; ASAPbio.org). Today, I will discuss three important aspects of publication: 1) dissemination of results to the community, 2) peer review, and 3) evaluation of the impact of the work to the field. I will examine ways in which we can improve all three elements in order to better serve the scientific community. I also will invite the audience to discuss their ideas on how we should advance scientific publishing.
