I apologize for possible duplications. PR

Dear all,

I'm glad to inform you about an initiative aiming at coordinating the publication of a block of papers related to biological wiki systems in the next NAR Database Issue.
This initiative is a follow-up of the NETTAB 2011 workshop on Biological Wikis (see http://www.nettab.org/2010/ ).

A discussion is now going on through the Google biowiki-l list and group. See the announcement below.
Subscribe to the list at http://groups.google.com/group/biowiki-l and join the discussion now.

See you on biowiki-l.

Paolo Romano

Hi all,

We are exploring the idea of coordinating a block of publications on biowiki databases in the next annual NAR Database Issue.
Do we have a critical mass of interest?
Are there enough examples of reliable, well-maintained, active and useful biowikis to warrant a concerted effort?

Carefully review the criteria for submitting to the NAR Database Issue: http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/nar/for_authors/msprep_database.html .
In particular, consider whether your biowiki has demonstrated maturity.
How does your content quality, breadth and reliability compare to related databases?
Does your biowiki service a broad community of users?
Do you provide useful accessibility or analysis functions?

Here are some recent examples:

This would not be a Database Issue *about* biowikis.
Thus, the criteria for acceptance would not be biased just by the fact that your resource *is* a wiki.

Reply to this thread if you are interested, so we can gauge the level of coordination needed.
Here is the timeline for submissions:

* Pre-submission inquiry -- 1 July
* Paper submission -- 15 August
* Published online starting in November
* Issue finalized by mid-December
