At the Beyond the PDF 2 conference in Amsterdam, we gathered around in a lunch session about audiovisual sources in online academic publishing. What are the best practices that currently exist? What tools are in use or should be developed? What needs can be explored? This wiki-page explores these topics by offering an overview of the questions that come up when talking about AV media in scholarly publications and showcasing some of the solutions that currently exist.
