Let’s Talk: Bringing Many Threads Together to Weave the Scholarly Information Eco-system

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The OSTP directive (2/22/13) to make peer reviewed articles and data resulting from research funded by federal agencies publicly accessible inspired several new initiatives, most notably the SHARE project being developed by university and library groups; and the publishing community-offered CHORUS project. Although these approaches were initially developed independently (and viewed by some as competing), many of those involved have come to see them as potentially complementary. In the months since, there has been considerable conversation among people involved in these and various related initiatives about bringing these together to help make sense of a broad-based information ecosystem.

In this informal and interactive session, speakers affiliated with each of these will discuss commonalities, opportunities for collaboration, and the desirability of bringing all stakeholders in the scholarly communication community together to develop systems that can address the common interests of the general public and all those concerned about the advancement of scholarship.

Format: No presentations. A facilitated, unscripted, conversation among the participants (with audience participation) touching on areas of agreement & disagreement, possible collaborative approaches and both complementary and divergent visions for the scholarly communication system of the future.
