Issues in online publishing in the sciences

For those following the rapid (or not rapid enough?) changes in scholarly publishing, check out this interesting interview with Peter Binfield of PLoS and Jason Hoyt of Mendeley on The two explore the problems and promise of online scholarly publishing, as well as new ways of doing scientific research in the Internet era.

Among the topics discussed: Open Access, peer review, impact factors, and digital commenting. Skip the technical difficulties at the beginning and start listening around 5:30, when the interview properly starts.

Hat tip to Digital & Scholarly.
