The Next Frontier: Incorporating Interactive Visualizations in Online Journal Content

The Society of Scholarly Publishing, in collaboration with the Association of American University Presses, invites you to join us for a 90 minute web seminar focused on enhancing journal articles with interactive visualizations. Speakers will presents examples of integrating interactive content into the published record and review the necessary infrastructure required to transition the journal article from a static 2D unit to a 3D hub with links to all data and resources associated with the published conclusions.

Content interactivity has the potential to enhance usage of content, improve understanding of technical journal content among a broader audience, allow authors to present complex data in multiple formats, facilitate the usage (and hence citation) of data published in the journal article, serve as educational tools to more widely disseminate research content to a broader audience including non-specialists, and increase linking of published content with a growing number of databases.

The experienced speakers will showcase specific examples where journals have integrated interactive 3D content in articles and explore new features that enhance the presentation of complex content in the digital world. They discuss the resources and costs involved in establishing the infrastructure to support their efforts, and review the decisions that needed to be made before they began the projects.

The speakers will also address creation, editing, reviewing and archiving such interactive content. They will also speculate on where these developments are taking journal publishing. How will these and other forms of interactive visualization complement or supplant the traditional publication? How will journals differ from databases in the future? And what are the implications in terms of current norms in version control and citability?

Join us if you want to:

  • Understand emerging trends in interactive visualization
  • Find out what types of visualization can be included with the published records
  • Discover the benefits of including interactive content with journal articles
