eLife Open house; Introducing a new high-end journal for the life sciences

Ian Baldwin (Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, eLife Senior Editor)

"Introducing a new high-end journal for the life sciences"

07.12.2012, 16:00 h
MPI-CE, Hans-Knöll-Str. 8, Large seminar room (A0.009/A0.011), Jena

Scientists have lost control of the publication process and eLife is an attempt to empower scientists to regain control over a process that is so fundamental to our daily work as well as our professional advancement.

eLife is a new journal, the result of an unprecedented collaboration between the funders and practitioners of life and biomedical science, aiming to catalyze fundamental change in research communication. Motivated by the tremendous opportunities afforded through digital media, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society and the Wellcome Trust have come together with the research community to create a new and transformative journal, as a first step in the broader eLife project. At this open house, Ian Baldwin will talk about the three legs of eLife\´s initial mission which are: to publish outstanding science under an open-access license; to create an unparalleled editorial process that is decisive, fair and efficient; and to fully utilize digital media in the presentation of new research. eLife started accepting manuscripts in the early summer and the first papers to be published are available at: www.elifesciences.org/the-journal/articles/

The official launch of the journal will be on Dec 11 and this will be an opportunity to get a preview of the next batch of accepted manuscripts.

Come join us for pizza and beer and an open discussion about the most important activity for all scientists: their scholarly communications.
