Why not publish scientific papers and supporting data in a seamless, dynamic, interactive package? At the Beyond the PDF workshop, attendees are looking for big new gains in research productivity, peer-review, dissemination, cross-referencing and more.

Some authors are entranced by the possibilities for reinvigorating science education. They see the chance to bring students closer to the data than ever before, and believe that new sources of inspiration could revolutionize the process of drawing young minds into science and engineering.

If only the publishers, libraries, institutions and technology people would just get their act together, they say, the pace of progress itself would accelerate, encompassing source materials, built-in interactive analysis tools, social media, and more.

I'd like to offer one perspective from the point of view of an organization which has helped dozens of science publishers, pharmaceutical companies, engineering organizations and other demanding consumers of document technologies transition into the digital realm.
