Following our very successful workshop on “What Bioinformaticians need to know about digital publishing beyond the PDF” last year in ISMB 2013 (see our blog post), we are thrilled to announce that our workshop series will be continued in ISMB2014, Boston, USA (tentative dates July 13, 14 or 15). This year, we will join force with BioMed Central, to expand our discussion on new ways of digital publishing by a new topic, i.e., new ways of peer review and their impact on bioinformatics. The workshop is organized by the managing board of Research Object, representatives of ISA community, and participation of BioMed Central and their journals Biology Direct and GigaScience. The workshop web site will be announced shortly! Mark your date, and join us in Boston!
