In this community call, at 11am New York | 4pm London on October 24, 2018, we invite the developers and the users of technology for science communications and publishing from all corners to join in and share projects that are underway, learn more about what others are up to and how they’ve solved tricky problems, and consider where collaboration can contribute to the path forward.

The agenda is open to anyone who would like to present, in five minutes or less, an open source project that:

  • Has relevance to research communication, from sharing and discovery to reading and evaluation
  • And has recently been released or significantly updated, or is in active development

We also welcome participants who wish to present a specific key question they’d like the group to feed back on. Ask not what you can do for the others on the call, but what the others can do for you.

eLife participates in a consortium of collaborations that facilitate better communication and coordination of open-source innovations for scholarly communication. Groups involved in this effort are also Coko, Mozilla Science, OpenCon and Code for Science. A different group hosts a call each time.

We welcome comments, questions and feedback. Please annotate publicly on the article or contact us at innovation [at] elifesciences [dot] org.

Do you know someone with an idea to improve the way research is shared and evaluated? They could build it with project funding, mentorship and exposure through the eLife Innovation Initiative. Get in touch.
