Vitek Tracz Visualizes the Future of Publications
Want to hear from one of the pioneers in scientific publications? Are you curious as to how the man who, almost singlehandedly, changed the way we read scientific journal articles sees the future of the industry? ISMPP is excited to announce the addition of Keynote Speaker Vitek Tracz to our impressive roster of faculty for January’s European Meeting in London.
A true Renaissance man, Tracz has studied mathematics, cinema, and art history, collaborated on a feature film, dabbled in mobile phone navigation, and owns an enviable collection of art. An early internet presence, Tracz launched BioMed Net, an online community for scientists, in 1996 and Biomed Central, the first open-access journal, two years later.
He founded the Current Opinion journals and piloted other innovative publishing projects before tackling his latest initiative, Faculty of 1000, whose “Open Science” platform supports publication of all findings (negative results, case reports, observational studies) features speedy publication, welcomes open peer review, and includes source data for easy replication.
Tracz will share his know-how, passion, and unique perspective with ISMPP members as they adapt their medical publication skills to meet demands for ever greater transparency and ready access to the scientific literature. He will take the stage at 15:00 on the final day of the Meeting (Wednesday 20 January), so arrange your diary accordingly.
