Hi y'all! I'm a molecular and computational biologist who is nowadays developing a computer algebra system for a living. I'm interested in all things "open-science" and help to develop pandoc in my free time. Co-authored pandoc-scholar with @robert_winkler

@tarleb Hi welcome!

If you're new here, be sure to read our Community Standards: scholar.social/about/more

The rules are different here from other instances, and it's not everyone's cup of tea

But if you read that and think "yes I'm in the right place!" then pull up a chair and make yourself at home :)

@tarleb @robert_winkler welcome aboard :) I wish you a happy journey over here! could you elaborate more pandoc please 😬

@lift @robert_winkler pandoc is a universal document converter. E.g., with pandoc one can write in a lightweight, pure text format like Markdown, and produce beautiful PDF or Word docx output. It gives authors freedom of choice and could help reshape current academic publishing models.

See also pandoc.org and our paper (peerj.com/articles/cs-112/) for details.
