Concurrent 5D: Has the Time Come to Archive, Discover, and Cite Scholarly Blogs?
Blogging enables new forms of interaction between authors and their readers. As more scholars blog, there is a need for permanence of their social scholarship. Scholarly bloggers have identified three areas of activity and concern for social media scholarship: archiving, discovering, and citing. How can these activities be achieved? The work ORCID is doing to identify authors and provide tools such as DOIs for discovering and citing scholarship is an important step. Is it enough to give scholars the exposure they need for their social scholarship? Will scholarly blogging have a role in the tenure process once the framework of finding and citing is in place? Hear perspectives from scholars on the emerging and important topic of social scholarship, why scholars blog, and the value and importance blogging plays in their academic roles and scholarly communication.
