“Scholarly communication” refers to the ways in which the methods, findings and implications of academic research are made available in a trusted way, now and in the future, to those who have an interest in them.
Jisc’s work in scholarly communication recognises the changes brought about by the affordances of networked, digital technologies, which bring new possibilities and perturbations into a system that was relatively stable until the advent of the internet. One of these affordances is open access. This blog is a place where Jisc will share project news and advisory group work and ask for feedback on this. All other announcements support, guidance and resources are made available through the Jisc website.
