Practically all papers at CEUR-WS.org are in PDF format, like with most online publication channels.┬áIs this format sufficient? I think that supplementary material like datasets, source code, reviews etc. would significantly increase the utility of a paper for the scientific community. Currently, such supplementary material (if any) is put on repositories detached from CEUR-WS.org. This can create inconsistencies, e.g. when the data set is removed or altered. So, what about allowing authors of accepted papers to publish a “fat paper” , i.e. the printable paper (PDF) plus supplementary material. Are there standards available for such papers? Would you prefer a mandatory semantic annotation of the supplementary material? How can licenses be handled, e.g. for source code?

This blog is about discussing and sharing ideas on future directions for CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org). We started the service in 1995 to help workshop organizers to get their proceedings published online in a stable and citable channel.

Since then, technology has improved. In particular, semantic technologies offer additional ways to index and re-use scientific results.

We invite users of CEUR-WS.org to share their opinion with us. Just leave a comment to the relevant post here!
