This lightning talk is for people who are interested in developing a vision for the future of MERL based on new open science approaches and innovations in scholarly publishing.

Recent innovations include expanding pre-prints (ArXiv), documenting methodologies (Protocols.io), improving identifiers (ORCID, CrossRef Funder Registry), and ensuring that evaluations are findable and accessible (Digital Object Identifiers, Open Access).
