Hi nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals my name is alex fletcher and i’m the associate director of development for the public knowledge project i’m going to give a presentation on multimodal journal publishing this was first given at the first international symposium on multimodal publishing hosted by the university of victoria i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals work for the public knowledge project which is based at simon fraser university which is on the unseated territories of the squamish quikwetlam mosquim and slaveotooth nations i’m a member of the metis nation of british columbia via my father’s mother i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals was raised with an awareness but not without not with a real connection to that culture and i’m working to understand my subtle roots and history both through my european and media heritage so um i’d like to start with what multimodal publishing looks like in ojs and credit for these examples goes to kate shuttleworth who’s a digital publishing librarian and she works with numerous journals based on simon fraser university which is where these examples come from while i’m going through these i’d like you to assess a few things where does the content live does it live on your computer your server or somebody else’s if it lives on somebody else’s server then why for how long and what happens then does it play well with others does the content have a standard format can it be archived does the metadata conform to a standard are the semantics there for machine readable formats is it accessible and finally if any of these is not a positive answer if for example you’re hosting content on somebody else’s computer and you think it may go down in the future what does that mean can the downsides be mitigated can you encapsulate the content so it lives on your system can you convert to a more standard format or if not can you at least scrape the content later and then solve that problem down the road so the examples i’m going to present here are from a publishing course this is pub 371 called the structure of the book publishing industry in canada and this is a course taught by hannah mcgregor at simon prison university so here’s an example of a timeline this is using us an open source tool called timeline.
Js and so we nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals depend on your feedback for that sort of thing these improvements will go into our next release and finally uh just in terms of how you would do that this is our support forum and it’s it’s available for anyone to post if they have questions if they have suggestions if they’re encountering issues and the pkp team is frequently on this uh answering those questions but also so is the whole publishing community so if you’re doing an experiment with uh multi-modal publishing if you’re not sure whether a certain tool is suitable for multimodal publishing that will be preservable long-term for example you can ask that question here by posting a new topic that is the demonstration one thing that i’d like to improve is right now it’s necessary to manually upload all this content one at a time and i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals do apologize for that that’s one thing we’ve slated for improvement and um if you follow these practices one of the side effects here is that you’ll be in conformity with what the requirements are for the tool set for the rest of the scholarly publishing ecosystem for example if you’re doing uh using crossref for dois if you are using oipmh for harvesting into some other tool there’s a thousand different standards that you need to be careful to observe and if you follow these practices those will be observed as well and you won’t be for example stepping outside of the ogs website to present content but then breaking integration with another important tool like oy ipmh or google scholar or something else so again in the example content was all bundled there was very little handholding but there is some necessity for you to understand the technology if you’re going to be accessible if you’re going to be future proof all that sort of thing so why don’t we nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals see more multimodal publishing i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals think the most important cause here is that making the content can be hard um it’s really easy to produce a word document or an open document to generate a pdf and then to upload that to the website and publish it in ojs adding multimedia elements requires more expertise and even if you have the expertise it can be very time consuming so i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals think that’s one of the most important reasons we nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals don’t see more multimodal content another one is that um historically tenured promotion and impact factor have not favored experimental journals and experimental journals the ones who have been playing with multimodal content the longest one of the suggestions that came up during the conference is whether we nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals should embrace the ephemerality of multimodal publishing given that a lot of the examples didn’t tend to mature very well for example web pages broke flash became obsolete etc i’m of the view that treating the scholarship as a kind of a performance that might be a one-time thing or might be unavailable after a while is not a great outcome and i’m of the view that it’s not necessary to do that you can make content that will be archivable that will be accessible that will be long-term available that will stand the test of time and you won’t have to choose between newer technologies and sacrificing longevity in the process i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals do think there’s a huge potential for multimodal publishing i’ve seen some very effective interactive data sets it may cater to different learning styles and it can be more accessible if you have a textual article that’s got perhaps a video equivalent or an audio equivalent of narration that caters to for example visual disabilities or perhaps also different learning styles the tools are here to be used now nothing here is especially brand new or cutting edge all i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals would say is use them carefully thanks for watching um this is my twitter handle asymmetry underscore pkp but if you do have questions or your own experiments sorry about feedback then the best place to reach us is on the bkp support forum that is at forum.
Pkp.sfu.ca and i nursing journals, pharmaceutical journals will see you there thanks for watching.
