The 2016 Triangle Scholarly Communication Institute was held from October 9 to 13, 2016, at the Rizzo Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

This year’s theme was Incentives, Economics, and Values: Changing the Political Economy of Scholarly Publishing.

Based on proposals submitted in early 2016, five teams were invited to attend SCI 2016 in October. You can read more details about their projects in these blog posts.

During the Institute, SCI participants documented the experience and their ideas in real time, mostly on Twitter, but also in blog posts and shared documents. Here are some highlights from the week, and information about projects that were launched:
