Digital Transformation and a New Paradigm for Scholarly Publishing
Understanding how to leverage research content in new ways can extend readership for publishers and potentially membership for societies. The journal article is an efficient format for those who work in a discipline. However, research increasingly occurs at the intersection of disciplines, requiring new formats and methods to share results with a broader audience. Knowablemag recently launched by Annual Reviews and Plantae led by the American Society for Plant Biologists, are examples of new initiatives designed to reach an intended audience by making content available in new ways. What inspired these projects and what was required to make them a reality? How has it gone so far? What is being done to make them sustainable?
