Profile: An Interview with Michael Markie - an open science and open data advocate

Abstract

Medical writers commonly are hired to write for traditional journals targeting the highest possible impact factor. However, as medical writers, we should be aware of alternative options. In September last year, I had the pleasure to meet Michael Markie during a session on “The Future of Medical Journals and Getting Published in the Digital Age”, who gave an inspiring talk about Open Science publishing platforms. Michael is the Publisher at F1000Research, and is an open science and open data advocate. Michael’s main role is to work on devising and implementing innovative ways to improve the uptake of open science practices and improve reproducibility for the scientific community as a whole. He has also helped to launch the new funder based publishing platform Wellcome Open Research.
