Revolutionizing scholarly writing with the Manubot: a foreshadow of publishing's future

Manubot is a system for writing scholarly documents on GitHub. It aims to transform publishing to be transparent & reproducible, immediate & permissionless, versioned & automated, collaborative & open, linked & provenanced, decentralized & hackable, interactive & annotated, and free of charge. Manubot accomplishes these goals by applying the workflow from open source software to academic writing. This talk will introduce Manubot and its features. Compared to other methods for writing scholarly documents, Manubot is designed for more technical users as well as infrastructure providers. However, we hope many of Manubot's innovations — such as citation-by-identifier and end-to-end reproducibility — will be adopted more broadly. Hence, this talk should engage all conference participants by foreshadowing a future of publishing towards which we strive!
