*******************************************************************

###### Workshop Objectives ######

The Workshop in Digital Scientific Communication (WDSC) aims at addressing all issues arising in the attempt of revising current scientific communication practices and surrounding or related ICT or RI technologies in order to deliver to scientists a complete picture of existing research results. The main motivations and challenges are the identification of solutions for partly or fully sharing scope and/or results of the scientific process in order to maximize reusability, accessibility, and assessment of research activities. WDSC takes over the LCPD workshop series (held in Malta 2013 and London 2014, in conjunction with TPDL conferences) from a broader perspective and as such it becomes its natural continuation.

###### Workshop topics ######

The topics of this workshop are of interest to, but not limited to, the following research avenues:
* Classification (models and ontologies), description (e.g. metadata), identity management, of products of science different from the traditional article
* Representing, exchanging, sharing, assessing (peer-reviewing), depositing, preserving products different from the traditional article
* Interlinking and contextualization: mining techniques, LOD, data models, relationships (citation, versioning), etc.
* Findability of products of science: indexing, searching, browsing challenges
* Controlled access (e.g. anonymization, role-driven views)
* New publishing workflows for products different from the traditional article

###### Special theme ######

Although not mandatory, this year’s edition will also include a special focus on the “publishing of scientific experiments”, i.e. any scientific products intended to convey and describe the scientific process (i.e. experiment) in such a way it can be “repeated” by others. Special themes include, but are not limited to:
* Identification, representation, description (metadata), deposition, preservation, evaluation, and interoperability for experiments
* Enabling repetition (“same experiment, same laboratory”), replication (“same experiment, different laboratory”), reproduction (“same experiment, different input parameters”), or re-use of experiments (“use as parts of other experiments”)
* Interlinking (and contextualizing) with other products of science, e.g. datasets, articles. 
* Research datasets, articles, and other product of research conceived to support experiment “publishing”, e.g. executable papers, electronic notebooks, software journals, Elsevier’s “article of the future”, software publishing, datasets embedding services.

###### Paper Submission ######

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers. Submitted manuscripts will have to be in the range of 4000-5000 words and edited with OpenOffice Writer or Microsoft Word, following the "Matters of style" section in the author guidelines for D-Lib Magazine. 

Papers submitted to the workshop will undergo a single-blind peer-review process by Program Committee members. Accepted papers will be published as a special issue of the D-Lib Magazine journal, in the first Quarter of 2016. To be published on the proceedings, accepted contributions should be revised according to the reviews and consider the feedbacks from the workshops. Moreover, at least one author is required to register and present the paper at the workshop.

###### Submission System ######

Research papers must be submitted via the workshop submission system, available at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wdsc2015

###### Important dates ######

Research paper submission: July 5th, 2015 - 23:59 CET
Extended paper submission deadline: July 12th, 2015 - 23:59 CET
Notification of acceptance: July 24th, 2015
Revised paper re-submission: after workshop date, to be agreed with D-Lib Magazine
Workshop day: September 18th, 2015
