Scholarly Conversations: About the Series

Learn about new publishing models, impact measures, and other scholarly communication issues from leading experts with the Scholarly Conversations speaker series.

About Scholarly Conversations

The Research Works Act and the Cost of Knowledge movement recently brought international attention to key scholarly communication issues. These issues, centered on access to and impact of scholarly discourse, are not limited to large research institutions. Every creator and consumer of scholarly information should be aware of these topics. The goal of the Scholarly Conversations series is to educate our communities, particularly faculty members, on scholarly communication issues and spark dialogues about how we create, share, and consume scholarly information on the liberal arts campus.
