Maryann Martone is Director of Biosciences for Hypothes.is and current President of FORCE11, an organization advancing scholarly communication. She tells us about a new open annotation tool, Hypothes.is, and why the ability to annotate scholarly objects is so important. “To enable a conversation over the world’s knowledge” is the slogan for Hypothes.is, a open annotation layer that allows anyone to annotate anything. With an innovative open source tool, having the ability to annotate published work, be it data, methods or peer review comments, further enhances reproducible science and transparency – an ethos of GigaScience.
