This course focuses on design and implementation processes of enhanced publications, particularly on the processes that underly the richer instantiations of this type of publication.
The traditional paradigm of scientific publication is rapidly changing. More and more, contributions to scientific journals are published on-line before becoming issued in print, if they even appear as printed matter. The on-line publication form itself, however, is subject to a growing criticsm as being too static and too much reflecting the old world of printing. Authors want to add extra materials (multimedia) to illustrate or clarify the line of argument, and even further levels of access are desired. Users expect some sort of interactivity when consulting on-line publications. The possibility of adding comments and reviews in a Web 2.0-style is just a first step. One step further is the possibility to consult repositories of research data on which the publications are based, to verify these data and check the validity of the conclusions drawn by the publications' authors. It was in this context that, in January 2010, the famous journal Cell launched the article of the future initiative.
The first experiments with enhanced publications testify to complex design and implementation projects. Questions arise about the publisher and repository environment, the infrastructure of repositories, publication models, services and tools to add data. But also questions about the enhanced publications themselves arise: which components are needed to ensure that enhanced publications offer the level of interactivity needed?
We will explore possibilities to construct a scientific sound environment for the production and publication of enhanced publications.
The last component must be passed with a grade of 5.5 or higher.
