Abstract:Scientific publishing is a crucial part of the research process. However, evidence suggests it also suffers from a number of drawbacks. The talk will outline the new publishing model launched by eLife in January 2023 and describe how this model addresses some of the current drawbacks of scientific publishing. Some metrics on the new publishing model for the first six months of 2023 will also be presented (e.g., submission volumes, percentage of manuscripts sent for peer review, distribution of terms used in the common vocabulary as part of the eLife assessments, etc.)
