Josh Nicholson is co-founder and CEO of scite (scite.ai). scite is a deep learning platform that allows anyone to see how a scientific paper has been cited, not just how many times and, specifically, if it has been supported or contradicted with evidence. Previously, he was the founder and CEO of the Winnower and CEO of Authorea (acquired in 2018 by Wiley), two companies aimed at improving how scientists publish and collaborate. He holds a PhD in cell biology from Virginia Tech, where his research focused on the effects of aneuploidy on chromosome segregation in cancer cells.

2020 was a pivotal year for impact and metrics. In this panel we will explore the update to the JIF calculation, discussing the whys and nuances of citational practices as well as the value of understanding disciplinary differences and what impact means when citational practices differ.

AI Goes from Disruptive to Imperative

01:06:08

Release Date: 08/31/2020, Niels Peter Thomas, Mike Groth, Erin L. Cox, Josh Nicholson

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has been tested in a handful of academic publishing processes: discoverability, peer review, recommending content, and improving efficiency. But now the technology has advanced to the point where user experience can be highly personalized, scalability can be achieved without sacrificing quality, and machines generate entire books. We are now at a high-tech crossroads and it’s time for publishers to leap. This panel of movers and shakers in AI will explore exactly what can be gained by wider adoption of AI-powered solutions into editorial and production workflows. Stakeholders will discuss real use cases where intelligent automation has freed up time for critical efforts requiring human analysis and subject matter expertise. More importantly, we will tackle head-on the many uncertainties raised by AI, from its mysterious workings and unintended bias to fears about computers replacing people. Bring your questions and prepare to have your anxieties calmed as we imagine a publishing ecosystem of rapid workflows, higher-quality content, and an enhanced experience for authors and readers.

Expanding the Research Lifecycle

01:05:20

Release Date: 08/03/2020, Michele Avissar-Whiting, Josh Nicholson, Sami Benchekroun, Will Schweitzer

The researcher workflow is no longer a simple, linear process that starts with submission and ends with publication. New services and technologies abound that seek to enhance research impact and audience engagement long before submission and long after publication. With this lengthened lifecycle comes increased author expectations on the duration and depth of interaction with their research. The opportunity for publishers is greater impact and stakeholder engagement; the challenge is sustainable and practical implementation. This session will highlight three organizations that are innovating in stages outside of the traditional research lifecycle -- supporting early-stage research, preprint sharing, and post-publication connections, respectively. The goal will be to provide greater awareness of options that exist to enhance user engagement and better support authors, in ways that complement rather than subvert existing publication systems.
