Meeting report

Executive Summary

The third meeting of the Dryad Consortium Board was hosted at University of British Columbia from 7-9 July 2011. Over 20 representatives from a diversity of journals, societies, publishers and other organizations participated in helping to chart the next steps for the Dryad repository and organization. Major achievements of the meeting were a framework for the governance and revenue model for Dryad as it transitions to an independent nonprofit organization. Participants also provided guidance on a number of important policies, including those affecting software and other supplementary materials, and how to define those publications with data eligible for inclusion in the repository. Partners will have the opportunity to officially vote on the final governance and revenue proposals from the Executive Committee based on the framework emerging from this meeting.
