Scholarly Communication

Scholarly communication generally encompasses the cycle through which research and other scholarly works are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use.

Much of CARL’s work in this area is focused on open access, which broadens the dissemination of research results and contributes to their preservation. Other related CARL initiatives include repositories, digitization, research collections, and bibliometrics.

In early 2017, CARL released a Scholarly Communications Roadmap, which presents clear activities CARL aims to undertake to stimulate positive change towards an open, sustainable, effective and innovative scholarly communication system.
