WeFold paper on CASP11 has just been accepted!

The followup paper to the first WeFold experiment was just accepted this week in Nature's online open access journal that covers the natural sciences: Scientific Reports.

The paper is titled: "An analysis and evaluation of the WeFold collaborative for protein structure prediction and its pipelines in CASP11 and CASP12"
and just as with the first WeFold paper about CASP10, Foldit played a very large part in CASP11!

In order to publish these results, however, we must now abide by the new authorship policy that journals have now implemented requiring author names and affiliations for all authors. Previously, we had used "Foldit Players" (or Players, F.) to represent all of you.

Similar to Foldit's previous publication in Nature Communications, for this paper you will all be under the group consortium: "Foldit Players", and anyone who played a CASP11 puzzle has the option to list their complete real name (we cannot use Foldit usernames).

If you played one of the CASP11 puzzles and would like your full real name to be included in the group consortium list for this paper, please follow the directions below in the comments by Saturday June 2nd at 11:59pm GMT

We would like to emphasize that this is completely voluntary, as we will of course also have a statement in the acknowledgements thanking all Foldit players, just not by name.

How to get your user page number

If you click "My Page" on the foldit website, the resulting URL will end in "me" instead of your user page number. Instead, try clicking "Players", then on the right click "Top Soloists", then use the search field on the left to enter your user name and search for your page. When you reach your page that way, the URL in your browser will end with your user page number. I'm sure there are other ways that work as well.

Thanks Susume!

Another way is to go to your page and scroll all the way down, then click on SHOW DETAILS >
and that will load the url with your ID.

Your player id will be in any puzzle subdirectory you have played.
