The Future of Digital Scholarship LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Scholarship is continually evolving.  The future of scholarship with digital technology facilitating dynamic links between papers, books, data, video, audio, tweets, blogs, and other research media seems less tethered to traditional written arguments in either journal or book form, and more based on the construction and communication between various types of data.  Yet, the current infrastructure for digital scholarship (institutional repositories, e-journals, and e-books) largely mimics the traditional print-based forms. This ARCS roundtable will explore future visions for dynamic electronic scholarship and the infrastructure needed to accommodate new needs and expectations.  

In this moderated Q&A, stakeholders from the scholarly, library, and publishing communities will explore fundamental questions such as:  

• What is digital scholarship and how is it different from traditional scholarly communication?

• What happens when scholarship is no longer an argument constructed by long-form writing but rather by a series of tweets and linked data?

• How can scholars communicate and evaluate these new forms?

• What should libraries do to facilitate such conversations?

• What kind of infrastructure is needed for digital scholarship?

This session will initiate our exploration into the innovations the scholarly communication community must affect to meet future needs.
