at the end if you wish but feel free to raise your hands and ask any questions during the course of the presentation if you like to spark some discussion so I’ve just mentioned too in brief what the outline of our talk will be today so without further ado I’ll continue with it so you may be familiar with the publishing cycle and this is pretty much how we play a central part in the process so as a publisher we facilitate a system where you submit all your papers and we ensure that there are editors on the journals and who are as cheese in their fields in order to manage the peer review process to make sure that your your paper gets a go to review that’s helpful to you but also it’s a it’s a stamp it’s a certification of validity in terms of the content we make sure that your article is structured and prepares in to hurry to performance and swiftly right through the production systems we published as quick as possible then your ours was finally published on its dissemination so we ensure that there’s a system in place where your article can be found and will always be present and in the correct and updated for us and around all of this there’s a number of different developments that have been going on in the last couple of years with all of the electronic developments and you have seen for example this we’ve moved very much to for print to online and we’ve been enhancing how we reach the article online so it feels up for example for science directions to a similar one for surface to ensure that wherever you are and whatever you’re doing you can access your paper or your colleagues papers or your peers papers so publishing over the last five six seven years it’s undergone quite a radical change in how things have been done and you know some of the more established academics may remember years ago going to a conference and trying to find an editor of a journal and taking three copies of your paper with you hoping that the edge are there would be able to find three reviewers to review your paper and you pop it in the mail and every day you’d be looking at a post to see how something coming back from the journal editor publisher and will take a long time to get published these days is much quicker depending on discipline earring but the average time instead of wasting the year or two is really a month or two the format of the article and how its read online has also changed the accessibility to research is much better than it was because there’s no more print everything is online and it’s readily available for you to find in addition to how you find the content we’ve made a lot of developments and how you use the content and by finding one article we help you to find related reading materials so that you don’t have to spend you’re applying yourself looking through all of the research articles in your area and there’s also been a lot of developments in terms of data and how we support the implementation of data into the article and the supplementary data that you might want to add to your article is relevant for others some journals and the publishers now are actually asking for your data and when you’re submitting your article and that hasn’t really made much progress – but I think it will over the next coming years I’ll discuss a little bit later and some of the peer review process in a little bit more detail but touching on trends and publishing and how we have been looking at these trends over the last couple years I just wanted to give you some information on that and a lot of the developments that we’ve made have been but through collaboration with all of you so we’ve been talking to our researchers and sending out surveys and hearing from our users which are you how you want the worth of publishing to develop and tied into mass via for example over the years ago we’ve done a few peer review grad challenges or we’ve opened the floor for ideas and any good ideas that came through there were voted upon and we’ve tried to implement them we’ve also been listening to how much time it takes you to submit an article and what the pain points are of our authors and reviewers and we developed your paper you’re away a number of years ago where we eliminated formatting and referencing requirements so a couple years going to provide for authors and you would spend a long time formatting your article to
