New Models in Disseminating Knowledge


This FLC will explore and foster collaborative interest with the many transformations taking place with scholarly publishing. An example of these changes is the advocacy of open access publication motivated by issues of equity related to restricting access to a privileged few.

Expected outcomes of the community include sharing our knowledge to a wider group of faculty at the university and engaging both faculty and administrators about the changes with scholarly publishing and our current systems of recognition, value and impact of scholarship.  We will also study the potential impacts of price barriers and permission barriers in limiting access to scholarly material by our students, colleagues and community.
