Today we spoke with Dr. Ross Mounce, a co-founder of the new open access journal, Research Ideas & Outcomes (RIO), announced last week. There are multiple goals of the journal, outlined on the RIO website:
"The Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO) journal publishes all outputs of the research cycle, including: project proposals, data, methods, workflows, software, project reports and research articles together on a single collaborative platform, with the most transparent, open and public peer-review process. Our scope encompasses all areas of academic research, including science, technology, humanities and the social sciences."
In the spirit of open access, we decided to provide you with the full interview in our first podcast.
