This is the blog of the LiquidPub project. On this blog we will post updates about new developments within the project. And we will also use it as a platform to share and discuss related and interesting things that we came across in the course of our research.
The LiquidPub project proposes a paradigm shift in the way scientific knowledge is created, disseminated, evaluated and maintained. This shift is enabled by the notion of Liquid Publications, which are evolutionary, collaborative, and composable scientific contributions. Many Liquid Publication concepts are based on a parallel between scientific knowledge artifacts and software artifacts, and hence on lessons learned in (agile, collaborative, open source) software development, as well as on lessons learned from Web 2.0 in terms of collaborative evaluation of knowledge artifacts.
The project is an international and interdisciplinary collaboration between the following partners: IIIA-CSIS (Barcelona), Institut Nicod-CNRS (Paris), Springer Science (Heidelberg), University of Fribourg and University of Trento. Each of the project member can contribute to the blog, but there are two main bloggers: Aliaksandr Birukou (birukou AT disi.unitn.it) based in Trento and Judith Simon (judith.simon AT ens.fr) based in Paris. While Aliaksandr will keep you updated about technical developments, Judith’s focus is on conceptual questions. In case of any question, comments and suggestions, please feel free to contact us!
