Host: Margaret Henderson (@mehlibrarian)

In the past, Scholarly Communication generally encompassed how research was disseminated, i.e. scholarly publishing, and maybe a little on how scholars share amongst themselves. Now, Scholarly Communication impacts all areas of scholarship, covering a diverse array of services that help people share information. Scholarly Communication groups are often based in libraries and their areas of expertise could include any or all of the following: 

  • authors’ rights
  • copyright
  • open access
  • institutional repositories
  • rights to federally funded research - articles and data
  • data management
  • copyright
  • plagiarism
  • models of publishing
  • economics of scholarly resources
  • usage metrics 
  • altmetrics

  • Join us to discuss the questions you have had in these areas, and how you resolved those questions. Or maybe the group can help with some answers.
    If you want to learn more, take a look through these organization and library websites related to scholarly communication.
