Visual Abstracts Make Scholarly Publications More ‘Social’
Before the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century, books were printed on hard wooden blocks—a very cumbersome process.

This, combined with the many new ideas that were emerging during the Renaissance, resulted in a transformative period in knowledge management. Academic journals are currently undergoing a similar transformation.
