Scholarly communication is the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use.
One of the fundamental characteristics of scholarly research is that it is created to facilitate inquiry and knowledge. The traditional model for scholarly communication is in crisis. Scholarly publishing models are not economically sustainable, limit the rights of authors, and increasingly limit the right of others to have access to quality information. Transforming scholarly communication is essential to ensure the free flow of scholarly information now and in the future.
