    Our 3rd and 4th speakers for #FuturePub 10 are confirmed as Vicky from Yewno and Janne from Peerage of Science!

    Full speaker line-up coming soon! Here's a quick rundown of the first four to whet your appetite:

    A New Cartography of Collaboration
    Traditional collaboration measures tend to lag (co-authorship of published papers) or only reveal part of the picture (investigators on grant funding). Here I'll present the first Digital Science Report to include analysis of selected Overleaf collaboration data, uncovering the structure of research relationships in real time. The results, presented here for the first time, show a new picture of collaborative research in its infancy.
    Daniel Hook, CEO, Digital Science

    Open Engagement and Quality Incentives in peer review
    What are the effects of opening the reviewer engagement, and of creating social incentives for quality, in scientific peer review and publishing? I will present data on reviewer behaviour and performance, and their correlations with eventual impact metrics of reviewed articles, in Peerage of Science. Peerage of Science is a different peer review and submission system, challenging many of the traditional dogmas of peer review.
    Janne-Tuomas Seppänen, Founder, Peerage of Science

    Discover what you've been missing
    With a unique technology that applies machine learning and advanced algorithms to textual documents, Yewno identifies semantic objects that each convey information and therefore can be given context to other concepts. As such, an artificial “neural network” is formed, and via a sophisticated, yet simple-to-use visual concept browser Yewno Discover offers the searcher efficient understanding of a new topic and effective insight into interdisciplinary connections.
    Vicky Hampshire, Vice President of Business Development and a member of the founding team

    Crossref Event Data
    Crossref Event Data is nearing beta testing, and we'd love to show you what it can do. CED is an open, transparent service for discovering how scholarly articles are shared, used and discussed outside the traditional literature. It finds links to scholarly content on social media, blogs and discussions so you can build tools and services and conduct research. I'll be showing you what it does, how it works, how you can get involved and I've love to know what you think of it.
    Joe Wass, Technical Lead for Crossref Event Data, working at Crossref Labs

    We still have some slots free so if you have a cool new product or innovation you've been working on, let us know and we'll see if we can fit you in!
