Much like happiness, science is only any good if it is shared. Publishing in scientific journals remains the preferred path for scientists to share their science, due not only to scientists’ choice to do so, but also to pressure from performance metrics to communicate science in these media.
But the industry of scientific publishing is currently under intense scrutiny. Accessibility, cost, suitability of (perceived?) impact factors, and a general culture of ‘publish or perish’ are some of the topics that generate heated debate around the future of scientific publishing.
With the current Crastina theme, the Crastina Crew would like to invite you to join the conversation and participate in creating a bold vision for what the future of scientific publishing should (or could) look like.
