      Rachel Drysdale and Jonas Dupuich will discuss the process of building and integrating their new thesaurus into the PLOS journals workflow and publication platform. From constructing the thesaurus to creating channels for feedback and updates, through building new current awareness and discovery tools, to gathering data for article level metrics and web site analytics, follow their progress through to today’s PLOS websites and services.
      About the Presenters:
      Jonas Dupuich is a Product Manager at PLOS focusing on tools and services that support editorial workflows. Recent projects include setting up a taxonomy management program and creating a service that recommends editors for submitted papers. Jonas is interested in alternative peer review models and the handling, curation and reuse of research data. Before coming to PLOS, Jonas was Product Manager for Digital Commons, the institutional repository and journal publishing platform from Berkeley Electronic Press.

      Rachel Drysdale joined PLOS as Taxonomy Manager in 2012, after her initial work as a Consulting Editor for PLOS ONE.  Before that, Rachel was at the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, where she headed the data curation group of FlyBase (flybase.org). During the FlyBase years she worked with emerging bio-ontology projects including the Gene Ontology and the Phenotype Ontology.  Rachel is delighted to have been in the scientific data business through the era of whole genome sequencing and annotation, and the growth of the Open Access movement, in all its contexts.
