Early proponent of open access and open review journal system (since 1994). Found of BioPerl project BioPerl Wikipedia page

I have been one of the earliest proponents of completely open system of hypertext and journal publication system since early 1990s. I have created my own internet hypertext system (like wiki) and also used the very early version of Ward Curnningham's wiki through personal communication.
I think the world should use a completely transparent open submission (pre-print like) and open review system for the fairest and most efficient dissemination of science knowledge.

I am a Perl programmer and have learnt many programming languages.

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Science. Jongbhak (discusscontribs) 02:12, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - this seems a highly suitable candidate. Chiswick Chap (discusscontribs) 10:43, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Ticks all the boxes. Obviously a highly experienced genomicist, but also publishing experience with an open access BMC journal (Genome Biol.) will be very valuable. Coding and wiki experience in multiple languages of additional benefit (I note that the Korean Genomics Center website is also a wiki). T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:18, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Questions - What does 'geromics' mean? Why do your articles at Google Scholar appear with the author name 'Jong Park' instead of 'Jong Bhak'? Why not mention your Wikipedia user page and personal website? Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 20:17, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
==> I used to use Jong Park until I got married my wife (2004) who wanted to use "Bhak", as my Korean name "박" actually sounds like "Bhak". Park is a Korean name given by the government in the past when Koreans first created passports years ago.
"Geromics" is a word coined by me (a neologism). Gero + Omics. It means omics study of Gero(aging, gerontology).
I have been into omics and have been running

  • Comment: The experience looks thin, even for associate editor. Wikiletters looks like a prototype that may or may not take off: an aspiration, not an achievement. Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 07:20, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
