|-|==Open review on-line, a new model in publishing conference abstracts.== |+|
|-|I wanted to start a discussion about whether OWW could be used for people to edit their abstracts that they submit to the conference [ http: //www. biosysbio.com BioSysBio & Young Bioinformaticians Forum] that I'm involved with (Manchester 2007). I anticipate if it were used then about 150 accounts would need to be created and abstracts could be submitted under a namespace like BioSysBio. It could work like this, we have a submission deadline, then an open review session using the wiki to communicate with people about their abstracts, then we have a second submission where delegates submit their final version. (this would then go on to be published, or a selection of the total). I think it would be great for people to submit an abstract and then for it to go through open review on OWW. It would be a test of a new model in publishing. It would also allow people to link to extra material, perhaps unlimited extra material. Whilst only the front page would be published, on-line would be a whole bunch of background on the topic. |+|
