Michael A. Keller, Ida M. Green University Librarian and Director, Academic Information Resources, Stanford University
At Stanford, Michael A. Keller is the Ida M. Green University Librarian, Director of Academic Information Resources, Publisher of HighWire Press, and Publisher of the Stanford University Press. These titles touch on his major professional preoccupations: commitment to support of research, teaching, and learning; effective deployment of information technology hand-in-hand with materials; and
active involvement in the evolution and growth of scholarly communication. He may be best known at present for his distinctively entrepreneurial style of librarianship. As University Librarian, he endeavors to champion deep collecting of traditional library materials (especially of manuscript and archival materials) concurrent with full engagement in emerging information technologies. Uniquely, Keller’s responsibilities at Stanford encompass libraries, cybraries, academic and residential computing, and publishing and publishing services. As a result of his work in collection development at Cornell, Berkeley, Yale, and Stanford—which provided broad exposure to the global publication and bookselling trades—Keller became convinced of a need for correction in the marketplace of scholarly communications, especially journal publishing. Long involved in the great debate on serials pricing, especially in the arenas of science, technology, and medicine, he has served as advisor, consultant, and committee member to the American Association for the Advancement of Science and other scholarly societies. Thus in 1995, in response to scholars’ requests for assistance to their scholarly societies, he established the HighWire Press as an enterprise within the Stanford University Libraries to provide online co-publishing services initially to three scholarly journals. As of January 2009, HighWire Press has grown to support over 1,200 high-impact STM journals among more than 130 major scholarly societies, over 1.8 million articles of which are available free online. Keller was educated at Hamilton College (B.A. biology, music 1967), SUNY Buffalo (M.A., musicology, 1970), and SUNY Geneseo (M.L.S., 1971). From 1973 to 1981, he served as Music Librarian and Senior Lecturer in Musicology at Cornell University and then in a similar capacity at UC Berkeley. While at Berkeley, he also taught musicology at Stanford University and began the complete revision of the definitive Music Research and Reference Materials, an annotated bibliography popularly known as Duckles in honor of its original compiler. Yale called him to the post of Associate University Librarian and Director of Collection Development in 1986. In 1993, he joined the Stanford staff as the Ida M. Green Director of Libraries. In 1994, he was named to his current position of University Librarian and Director of Academic Information Resources. In 1995, by establishing HighWire Press, he became its publisher, and in April 2000, he was assigned similar strategic duty for the Stanford University Press. In 2010, Keller became an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.
W. Carl Lineberger, E. U. Condon Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Fellow of JILA, University of Colorado
Carl Lineberger serves as E. U. Condon Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado Boulder.

He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Brian C. Martinson, Senior Research Investigator, HealthPartners Institute, Core Investigator, Minneapolis VA, Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research, and Associate Professor, University of Minnesota, Department of Medicine
Brian C. Martinson is a senior research investigator at HealthPartners Institute, Core Investigator, Minneapolis VA, Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research, and Associate Professor, University of Minnesota, Department of Medicine. He earned his Ph.D. in sociology and demography at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and his postdoctoral training was in cardiovascular behavioral health at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Over the past 15 years, Dr. Martinson has contributed both substantively and methodologically to improving the understanding of research-related behavior (both that which contributes to research integrity and that which can undermine it), as well as to understanding the determinants of such behavior. He has led or co-led four federally funded research projects on these topics. His work was the first to document surprisingly high levels of self-reported, undesirable research-related behavior in large samples of NIH-funded researchers (see, e.g. Martinson et al., 2005, Nature, “Scientists behaving badly”). This line of research was also among the first to document the potential influences of perceptions of organizational justice on research-related behaviors among academic researchers. As Co-Principal Investigator with Dr. Carol Thrush, he co-led the development of and assessment of the validity and reliability of a survey instrument to assess the integrity of organizational climates in research organizations, resulting in a tool called the Survey of Organizational Research Climate (SOURCE). Most recently, he served as PI of a two year project in the VA conducting a randomized controlled trial using the SOURCE tool as part of a project testing the efficacy of a reporting and feedback intervention to improve research integrity climates in VA research settings. In 2009–2010, Dr. Martinson served as a consultant to a three-university consortium participating in the U.S. Council of Graduate Schools’ Project on Scholarly Integrity. During that same time frame, he served on an invited expert panel on research integrity, convened by the Council of Canadian Academies at the request of Industry Canada, leading to the report Honesty, Accountability
and Trust: Fostering Research Integrity in Canada. In 2014, he served on the planning committee and subsequently as a speaker at a workshop of the Roundtable on Science and Welfare in Laboratory Animal Use (An ILAR Roundtable Series)—“The Missing “R”: Reproducibility in a Changing Research Landscape, National Academy of Sciences, Institute for Laboratory Animal Research. Washington, DC, June 4-5. In 2015, he was an invited participant (one of 20) in a 2-day colloquium, sponsored by the American Academy of Microbiology, focused on issues of reproducibility of research in that field, entitled “Promoting Ethical Practices in the Scientific Enterprise,” Washington, DC, October 14-15.
