2014 SSP 36th Annual Meeting

Concurrent 1D: Simpatico or Star-crossed Lovers?

Stakeholder Perspectives
Concurrent 1D: Simpatico or Star-crossed Lovers? Scholarly Communication and Scholarly Publishing Seek to Rekindle Common Passions

Scholarly communication has been synonymous with scholarly publishing for as long as most of us can remember as the modes of distribution and consumption aligned seamlessly. However issues such as open access, electronic access, digital publishing platforms, challenges to peer review, changes in library collection development, and formats straying from the book-journal binary reveal frays and fissures in the fabric of scholarly publishing. Stakeholders hail from very different standpoints yet ultimately all want to facilitate the dissemination of scholarship and research. This session brings together speakers from various standpoints to confront the divergence of agendas and find a common path forward.
