What do you mean by “scholarly communications”?

Scholarly Communication is usually understood to be about the way academics publish their research, and the way researchers get access to it.

For the purposes of this Institute, we’re defining it more broadly. New technologies have radically changed how scholars get access to information, analyze it, transform it into knowledge, share insights, influence policy, and contribute to broader understandings and uses of the issues they study.

We encourage participants in the Institute to think about scholarly communication as involving all of these processes, and including creators, contributors, collaborators, and audiences beyond the academy.
