Much of the work in the Scholarly Communications space involves advocacy as it  applies to the many levels of the institutional hierarchy. Shifts in how research and scholarship happen have meant that institutions must collaborate across traditionally isolated units to provide infrastructure and services needed to support these shifts. In addition, institutions are navigating external pressures and a proliferation of research reporting and promoting services and products being marketed by prominent publishers and vendors. The continued success of all who are involved in this scholarly communication life cycle hinges on the ability to anticipate rapid changes in scholarly communication and to adapt to external and internal opportunities and challenges. This course will give participants an overview of the current state of infrastructure and tools with an eye toward implications for the future of scholarly communication and information-rich and responsive universities.
This course is based on the observation that systems of scholarly communication are reproducing rapidly and are being marketed to our campuses to address specific stakeholder needs or as an interoperable system in support of the entire scholarly communication ecosystem. We will learn about advances in the field through evaluation of models, systems (open-source or proprietary platforms), stakeholders and drivers. We will focus on where we can exercise our influence on the infrastructure providers (for-profit and non-profit) to shape a healthy, sustainable, fair and equitable research information and scholarly communication ecosystem.
Three of the five days will feature vendors (commercial and non- or not-for-profit) and university-grown systems providing deep dives into how they support the open and information-rich university. For example, each vendor will be expected to address topics such as: what they are doing to support the open and information-rich university, open access, preprints, guidelines, data management, equity and inclusivity, marketing, and impact measurement and communication tools, as well as actionable takeaways aside from the product. Each day will end with a designated institutional/use case person as the discussion facilitator addressing gaps and opportunities.
