From a journal publishers’ perspective, the Web now means that we live in a world without borders or boundaries. Within this rapidly changing and challenging environment, this session will share a publisher’s insight into the future of medical publishing where: research and data will be more interconnected; articles will become more organic and evolve relative to user interaction and open peer review; and data repositories will serve as platforms to enable text and data mining.

Describe and illustrate with examples and data
Discuss and identify opportunities for improvement of these relationships
