LiquidJournals: Rethinking Scientific Dissemination and Reputation in the Age of the Web

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R6 - Content and Knowledge. Stand number: R6-05

Scientific publications meet the web in the LiquidPublication or ‘innovating the scientific knowledge object lifecycle’ project.

The way in which scientific knowledge is created, disseminated and evaluated has been essentially the same for centuries. Today, it is still hard to find what you want despite the community efforts in filtering (via peer review), and evaluating it (via metrics, such as its citation count). The exploding number of publications makes it even more difficult. The LiquidPublication project will demonstrate a different approach that makes better use of scientists’ time, and is more helpful in finding the information they need. The system uses the scientific community in filtering, linking and evaluating content ‘implicitly’ – that is, they share information while searching for knowledge for their own research purposes.
