Albert Einstein said “an academic career, in which a person is forced to produce scientific writings in great amounts, creates a danger of intellectual superficiality”. In 2019, researchers have been working with the pressures of “Publish or Perish” for decades. The default response is to question the value of microPublications that are produced as a result. But what about when microPublications are carefully defined; peer review is stringently completed; and they enable publishers to more efficiently produce the “longer story” research articles with pre-validated research outputs? Are there largely unknown opportunities and values to be gained quickly? Can microPublications enable synthesizing and distilling of information and integrate this information in established repositories to create a more meaningful and greater corpus of knowledge – dare we say, global knowledgebase?
We will hear from scientific curators with new roles as editors of microPublications, and a publisher who encourages this new publishing genre.

Metrics and impact measurement have become an increasingly important part of the scholarly publishing and research landscape. This online course covers some of the ways publishers can measure impact and the associated metrics. It is divided between citation metrics, such as the Impact Factor and citation based analysis, and altmetrics looking at a range of tools such as altmetric.com, Impact Story and PlumX. The course also covers usage as a metric and various author and article level metrics such as the h-index.
