Perspectives on the Future of Scholarly Communication

Since knowledge is not a private good, a pure market approach leads to under-provisioning. Planning for access to the scholarly record should include planning for long-term access beyond the life of a single institution. Important problems in scholarly communications, information science & scholarship increasingly require diverse multidisciplinary approaches.
My colleagues Lynne Herndon, Amy Brand and I were honored to be able to discuss the future of scholarly communication at  Georgetown University’s annual Scholarly Communication Symposium.
