Disrupting the Status Quo: New Models & Technologies for Scholarly Communication

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

Despite a context of rapidly changing technologies, modes and models of scholarly communication - particularly, the published article and monograph - have not changed much in the last 350 years.  It seems significant and sustainable innovations are beginning to emerge, developed and supported via a network of stakeholders and activities, both technically and socially rooted.  This panel will explore technologies, models, and ideas that are changing and responding to how research is shared and how scholars are sharing.  Panelists will profile their projects and perspectives, followed by a moderated Q&A.
