August 15-18, 2017. 3rd BioSyst.EU meeting, Gothenburg, Sweden


On August 17 at the 3rd BioSyst.EU meeting , Plazi will organize for the Swiss Systematics Society the symposium "The future of scientific communication in biodiversity science.

Abstract: Sciences are undergoing a huge change in the digital age. This results in new research areas and results, also in systematics, and in new ways of communicating both the results and the underlying research process. This session will draw on a range of examples from across the biodiversity sciences to address how individual scientists and their institutions can benefit from and contribute to this revolution, including for instance the goals and politics of open access and repositories, linking specimens to publications, and the future trends in scientific communications.
