Join OCLC Senior Program Officer Titia van der Werf for an introduction to the report “The Evolving Scholarly Record”, and OCLC Research’s agenda in this area.
The report, by Brian Lavoie et al., proposes a framework to help drive the discussion about the reconfiguration of roles associated with creation, management and use of the scholarly record in a fast changing research communication environment. We are convening our partners and inviting stakeholders to workshops to test the framework and identify stewardship issues that merit further exploration. Come learn about the outcomes of the workshops series held to date – in Amsterdam (June 2014), Washington (December 2014), Chicago (March 2015) and San Francisco (June 2015). In Malta, we will discuss pertinent issues in break-out sessions and your contributions will help to consolidate feed-back and inform our Research agenda.
