Abstract: S3.00002 : Validity, not Dissemination
8:36 AM–9:12 AM
(American Physical Society APS)
Science journals have been transformed by the internet. In particular, increasingly their role appears to be to validate research, not to disseminate it. How are journals, and the communities they interact with, adapting? In this context, are alternatives to peer review on the horizon? Are these challenges unique to physics journals, or also seen in other publication scenarios?
