A paradigm shift in biodiversity publishing: Mobilization, mark up, reuse and integration of small data
The new paradigm in modern digital publishing is to remove the restrictions of the print/PDF age and opening data that underpin research and make it easily available for re-use. The Biodiversity Data Journal (BDJ) (www.pensoft.net/journals/bdj) and associated Pensoft Writing Tool (PWT) (www.pwt.pensoft.net) launched within the EU-funded project ViBRANT (www.vbrant.eu) provide the first e-infrastructure and work flow ever to complete the full publishing life cycle within a single, fully XML-based, online collaborative platform. BDJ publishes papers in all scientific disciplines of biodiversity science. To increase the quality of published research text and data submitted to BDJ will be peer-reviewed by the scientific community through a novel community-based pre-publication peer-review and possibilities to comment after publication (post-publication peer-review).
