This session is a repeat of the morning session, but not all will be live.

Following a live welcoming session with opening remarks, general orientation, and Q&A with the panelists listed above, we will follow up with a recording of the morning's panel presentation (followed by moderated discussion as time allows).

Recorded Panel: Science at the Speed of a Pandemic 

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the issues of speed, trust and validity for research communications into focus as never before. In this session of talks and discussion we will probe the issues with the people dealing with challenges in reprints and efficient peer review, experts on reproducibility and data management and the people who need to turn data and claims into policy on the ground.

Confirmed speakers include Theo Bloom (BMJ), Richard Sever (Cold Spring Harbor Press and BiorXiv) and Sabina Leonelli (University of Exeter) with others to be confirmed. We will discuss the challenges for science and scholarship in communicating rapidly and effectively to different audiences. Probing the challenges from peer review processes to preprints, data sharing to deliberate misinformation the panel will pick apart the issues based on their experience of the current crisis.
