All pre-conference workshops required separate registration. That registration process is now CLOSED and this workshop is full.  

Join this workshop to present ideas for non-traditional publications that precede typical preprint or journal publication. Sharing these different forms of short and rapid early may be the answer to transforming research communication and thinking outside the journal. We invite lightning talks and will address questions about how to author, produce, share and make discoverable these precursors to traditional publishing.
