Instructor: Cameron Neylon, PhD, Professor of Research Communications, Centre for Culture and Technology, Curtin University, Australia

Description: This course will provide an overview of the Scholarly Communications landscape of today, how we got here, and what we can tell about the current state of the field and how it is changing. The course will provide participants with a broad background on key topics along with knowledge of additional information sources to investigate issues further.
The course will provide a history of scholarly publishing and discussion of the information landscape, data availability, the economics of publishing and issues surrounding peer review. We will offer a broad overview of major trends for the future, but the focus is primarily on how things are.
There will be five half-day sessions offering a mix of lecture and practical work, particularly information gathering and analysis. The emphasis will be on providing frameworks within which information can be gathered and understood rather than on “fact teaching.
