-
#What features would we like for our papers?  Reader comments?  Reader Wiki?
+
-
#How should the structure of a paper be changed to reflect things like, well, the Internets?
+
-
#What existing journals are the most appropriate/receptive venues for publication of SB work?
+
-
#How is publishing on SB topics different from any other field?
+
-
#What are the other (if any) alternate publishing models already out there?
+
-
#Non-synthetic biology improvement:Author IDs or URIs or something. Noticed this while trying to set up myNCBI searches for people with more common names, what a pain.  I'm changing my name to xyuitk.

#Can we ensure that publishing and access to publications is equally open to all institutions regardless of rank?
