Session:  New models for content creation:  text, data and multimedia

Session Organizer:  Tim Clark

Time:  Tuesday, March 19th, 11:15-13:00

Description:  The scholarly communications ecosystem relies on the Web, but is it sufficiently optimized for the Web?  Many of our colleagues believe it is not, and are attempting to fill vacant "ecological niches" with new models of content creation and aggregation. Some of these are in place already, some exist in a "gray literature" zone not officially recognized in the peer-review community, and some are simply interesting proposals.  The purpose of this session is to explore some of these models and provoke discussion and sharing of ideas.
