Redefining roles in scholarly communication with the microPublication project

microPublications are peer-reviewed, indexed, and fully citable publications. During the submission process, microPublications capture and verify atomized data, directly depositing it into authoritative databases/knowledge repositories. We've launched the "microPublication Biology" journal as the first facet of this project with more domain-specific journals to come. This strategy represents a welcome alternative to scholarly communication, expanding both the nature of published data as well as engaging more members of the science community in the publication process. I will talk about these expanded roles and newer stakeholders in this talk.
