Wikis as tools to publish scholarly workflows
While science can be regarded as a wiki, wikis can in turn be used for publishing and archiving scholarly workflows along all steps of the research cycle - i.e. for planning, recording, documenting and otherwise describing scientific research, optionally in a collaborative manner - thereby highlighting science as a process and scientists working on a given topic as a community.
Compared to traditional PDF-based publishing, a wiki (understood here as a collaboratively editable system of hyperlinked documents with a public version history) provides a wider range of possibilities in terms of perpetual public peer review, contextualization, semantic annotation and other forms of web-based enhancement, along with updatability and integration with interactive and other time-variant media.
This talk will be given on-wiki (landing page: http://species-id.net/wiki/User:Daniel_Mietchen/Talks/e-publishing_2011/Start). It will be very similar (in both content and presentation) to the one available via http://species-id.net/wiki/User:Daniel_Mietchen/Talks/Elephas_2011/Start.
Any machine not older than three years will do. When connected to the beamer, the effective screen resolution should be 1280 by 1024 or 1600 by 1280.
