Hello world! This Thursday, September 15th
from 1:00 - 3:00 pm EST, Authorea Co-Founder and CEO, Alberto Pepe will be participating in Reddit's r/science
Ask Me Anything (a.k.a. AMA) series.
AMAs were created by the Reddit community as an opportunity for interesting individuals to field questions about anything – and everything! AMAs hosted on Reddit have become an exciting platform for people to have direct discussions and gain insight into the lives of unique individuals, like President Barack Obama, Sir David Attenborough, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and many others.
Thursday's AMA discussion topic, "Publish and Prosper; How to Challenge Elsevier" will touch on:
how to break the cycle of the individual in academia and squash the collective obsession with academic rankings;
how open science and open scholarship will positively shape the future of academic publishing and increase the rate of scientific discovery;
introduce the 'paper of the future'; whereby a static paper is no longer viewed as an acceptable form of submission, rather a digital-born format that allows the reader to access and interact with the most important elements of a researcher's work: the data and code.
Join the discussion by posting your questions as early as 9:00 am EST! Alberto will be live starting at 1:00 pm EST.
