  • the open peer review process , recently started
  • new presentation formats, new reviewing protocols
  • they are ready to publish multimedia works, including podcasts. Ramsey’s “MultimediaBootcamp” paper is the first BDL piece to feature movies: Ramsey EC: Multimedia Bootcamp: a health sciences library provides basic training to promote faculty technology integration. Biomedical Digital Libraries 3 (3): 2006. [http://bio-diglib.com/content/3/1/3/].
