13:15 - 14:15 Keynote: Ways and Needs to Promote Rapid Data Sharing: Laurie Goodman, PhD., GigaScience
Data is the base upon which all scientific discoveries are built, and data availability speeds the rate at which discoveries are made. Given that the overall goal for research is to improve human health and our environment, waiting to release data until after the first publication (sometimes taking years) is unacceptable. There are myriad issues that impede researchers from openly, and most importantly, rapidly sharing data, including lack of incentives: no credit, limited funding benefits, and little impact on career advancement; and cultural issues: the fear of being scooped. However, scientific publishers —the communicators of science and a key mechanism by which a researcher’s productivity is measured— can, and should, play a central role in promoting data sharing. Data citation and publication are just some of the ways we can support and encourage researchers who share data. Here, I will provide examples to help make clear the need for publishers to play an active role in this process and provide potential ways to facilitate our ability to promote open and rapid data sharing. This is not easy; but it is essential. Presentation | Video Recording

16:00-17:00 Innovation Cartography: Creating impact from scholarly research requires maps not metrics: Richard A. Jefferson, Cambia Investment in scientific research and scholarship - by both governments and philanthropy - is attracting higher levels of scrutiny and demanding higher likelihood of economic and social outcomes. In response, a cottage industry of metrics mavens has emerged, finding more fine-grained ways of measuring scholars’ influence on other scholars or on the general zeitgeist. Most of these use citations of scholarly work as their hammer. It’s ok, but it’s not really what’s being asked for. Public funding is justified when there is a perceived market failure; areas of problem-solving or question-answering that simply don’t show a sufficient profit motive to engage the private sector fully. These ‘market failures’ occur when the beneficiaries are few; or many and diffuse (such as with environment and agricultural sustainability) or have little financial voice (such a most big public health issues, like obesity or malaria). When research enables a problem to engage the private sector by exposing opportunities or decreasing risks, there is a likely measurable economic up side. But part of this measurement has to do with benefit sharing. Is it right that public funding pays for research whose economic value is largely captured by private interests? The key to moving forward constructively is to ask ‘how does science-enabled innovation impact happen in the real world’? ‘What are the main blockers and enablers to choosing the right trajectories and partnerships’? How do institutions that live and die on this type of decision making do it? How can we make it cheap, transparent and useful for everyone to do this? We need to provide dynamic ‘maps’ of the complex knowledge space around important domains of problem solving. These maps must guide innovators and investors in real-time to improve the likelihood of socially desirable outcomes, by removing opacity and unnecessary risk and showing trajectories and partnerships that will optimize outcomes. Not only can it guide innovators and investors, it can be used as a framework for the public to evaluate their choices, their institutions, their champions, and to reward the good ones. In effect, to do what metrics should do in creation of public policy and effective institutions. I will describe the nascent field of open innovation cartography that will make this happen, and the platform, The Lens. The Lens hosts and serves the about 90 Million patent records, comprising much of the patent knowledge of almost a hundred countries. In collaboration with CrossRef and the US NIH, we have linked much of the scholarly knowledge cited within the patent corpus to their original teachings. While a new metric is emerging from this - enterprise influence - which shows what scholarly work influences or is cited by which patents and innovators, it is not the principal goal of The Lens. Rather we will create a global open platform in which domains of innovation - solar cells, vaccines, crops, industrial manufacturing, new materials, information technologies, medicines, electric cars and so on - can be rendered clear and accessible. The goal is ‘innovation intelligence’ as a zero cost public good - showing who are the scientists, technologists and investors, what patent teachings and what patent rights are in play, which institutions and companies are engaged, which jurisdictions and what products, and so forth.

16:30 - 17:00 Plagiarism as seen from the editors’ perspective, Virginia Barbour, PLOS, Committee on Publications Ethics (COPE) It has never been easier to plagiarize, and never been easier to detect plagiarism. What is hard is knowing how to deal with it. Editors now have to be experts at recognizing it, determining its severity, educating their authors and reviewers about it, in addition to deciding whether further action is needed. COPE aims to help editors with this process and wider policies and I’ll discuss the various tools available for editors to use. Presentation | Video Recording

13:15 - 14:15 Lunch
14:15 - 15:15 Sex and the Scientific Publisher: How Journals and Journalists Collude (despite their best intentions) to Mislead the Public, Ellen Ruppel Shell, Boston University Center for Science & Medical Journalism
Publication bias is the tendency of researchers, editors, and pharmaceutical companies to handle the reporting of experimental results that are positive (i.e. showing a statistically significant finding) differently from results that are negative (i.e. supporting the null hypothesis) or inconclusive, leading to bias in the scientific literature overall. Indeed, statistically significant results are three times more likely to be published than papers affirming a null result. Such bias occurs despite the fact that studies with significant results do not appear to be of superior design than are studies with a null result. There is evidence that some investigators actually decline to seek publication due to their anticipation that scientific publishers will not be interested in null results–the so-called “file drawer” effect. Complicating matters still further is that journalists tend to over-report positive scientific findings, with the result that the public is too often mislead as to the purpose, scope and consequences of a given scientific study. This talk takes a look at this problem through the lens of one of the most confusing–and least understood–issues of our time, the significance of innate cognitive differences between genders. Presentation | Video Recording
15:15-15:45 The Persistence of Error: A Study of Retracted Articles on the Internet, Phil Davis, Publishing Consultant
Article retraction is an attempt to correct the scientific record. In practice, readers may be unaware that an article has been retracted and cite it for years as a valid study. Scientific authors have little incentive to consult the publisher’s website or a literature index for the current status of each cited reference. In addition, copies of retracted articles persist, in many versions, on public websites beyond the control of the publisher. In this talk, I report on a study to locate versions of retracted articles on the public Internet as well as in the personal collections of Mendeley users. I discuss how a series of services could be designed to more effectively alert readers on the updated status of scientific articles. Presentation | Video Recording
15:45 - 16:15 Break
16:15-16:45 Results from global journal editor survey on detecting plagiarism, Helen (Y.H) ZHANG, JZUS (Journal of Zhejiang University-SCIENCE)
How do journal editors use CrossCheck? How do journal editors respond to the CrossCheck similarity report? What are the attitudes of journal editors toward typical problems that may often be encountered in different disciplines and different countries? What is the difference between the Anglophone and non-Anglophone journals in dealing with plagiarism? A few interesting questions that came up in our survey. Video Recording
16:45 - 17:15 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: What Retractions Tell Us About Scientific Transparency, Ivan Oransky, Retraction Watch
Science is supposed to be self-correcting, and retractions are the most draconian of efforts to keep the scientific record up to date. They’ve also risen dramatically in the past decade. But there is wide variation in how journals approach the withdrawals of papers. Some of those approaches raise serious questions about the transparency with which science would like to be linked. Here’s a look at a number of case studies from more than a year of Retraction Watch, as well as some suggestions for improving retraction practices. Presentation | Video Recording

13:30 - 14:30 Making sense of science and evidence, Tracey Brown, Sense About Science Video Presentation
Every month there are dozens of news reports about promising research, breakthroughs, scare stories and wonder drugs. Sense About Science has been working to equip the public to ask searching questions about claims they encounter in the media, advertising, campaigning and on the internet. These questions include: what is the status of the research? Is it published in a peer reviewed journal? How does it compare with other findings? These initiatives have made surprising headway and an understanding of scientific scrutiny and the peer review process is now seen as an important consideration by many policy makers, patient groups, healthcare providers, journalists, regulators, educators and by people who want to cut through the hype to evaluate claims. But do scholarly publishing, the quality of peer review and the integrity of the research base support this? Or is scholarly publishing itself dissolving into the internet free-for-all?
14:30 - 15:00 Which scientists can we trust? Christine Ottery, Science Journalist Video Presentation
Scientific fraud, outliers and mavericks, and pure disagreement in the scientific community leave the impression that scientists are flawed - and sometimes brilliant - human beings. What criteria do journalists, bloggers or researchers use to decide which scientists to trust? And how can publishers help communicate those criteria?
15:00 - 15:30 Break
15:30 - 16:00 Scholarly eBooks - Improving discoverability and usage, Carol Anne Meyer, Business Development and Marketing Manager Video Presentation
16:00 - 17:00 Publishing Data alongside Analysis: a case study from OECD, Toby Green, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Video Presentation
OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) is one of the world’s largest producers of social, economic and environmental data with nearly 400 datasets being constantly updated. It is also a significant research publisher in journal, book and working paper form. In this session you will learn how OECD has built a new publishing platform that integrates research articles, books, grey literature, supplementary data and original datasets into a single, seamless service. The service, OECD iLibrary, allows librarians to catalogue datasets as easily as books, publishers to link to datasets via Crossref and offers end-users ready-made dataset citations for their reference management systems.
Communicating Data: New Roles for Researchers, Publishers and Libraries, MacKenzie Smith, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Libraries Video Presentation
Digital research data is quickly becoming more accessible, and critical, to scientists and e-science. Providing the means to review, publish, visualize, annotate, cite, reuse, reproduce, integrate and analyze data requires traditional scholarly communication players to rethink their roles in relation to data and its infrastructure (software, instruments, databases, etc.). If we continue to see growth in enhanced, data-enriched articles, and if the scholarly record begins to depend as much on the quality and persistence of data as it now does on the literature, researchers, publishers and libraries (and their institutions) will all need to adapt, and quickly, to these new demands. The presentation will focus on what is happening at research universities and how researchers, publishers and libraries might respond.

13:15 - 14:15 Trust, Communication and Academic Publication, Professor Onora O’Neill, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Cambridge (Baroness O’Neill of Bengarve) Writing has always created distinctive problems for communication. Because it is neither face-to-face nor usually two-way, the ordinary means we use to check what others say and undertake are missing, and the intelligent placing and refusal of trust is harder. Academic publication has always aimed high in providing alternative ways for readers to check and challenge what they read, but this is changing as the ‘community of scholars’ becomes a globalised community of greater diversity. What balance can we achieve between various aims such as checking authenticity, assessing reputation and judging quality?

Cathy Griffin, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery Presentation
Howard Ratner, Nature Publishing Group Presentation
The CrossCheck plagiarism detection service has been running for almost 18 months and over 60 Crossref members have added their content to the database. Many of these publishers have now started to screen manuscripts using the iThenticate system, and are adapting their editorial workflows accordingly. This session will give an update on the progress of CrossCheck, with first-hand feedback from three publishers on how they are incorporating plagiarism screening and the issues and results that they are encountering.
15:30 - 16:00 Break
16:00 - 16:45 Plagiarism in the Academy: Now What Do We Do?, T. Scott Pluchak Director, Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham Presentation
Crossref’s CrossCheck service is one of a growing number of tools that are being used to identify possible plagiarism in the scientific literature. As these tools become more widely available, it is incumbent upon editors and journal publishers to insure that they have adequate policies in place for identifying plagiarism and dealing with suspected instances appropriately. This presentation will review the current status of “plagiarism awareness” and discuss some of the approaches that publishers are taking to address the issue.
