Expanding the Research Lifecycle

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.
