Published on May 17, 2012
The Spring 2012 Scholarly Communication Symposium brings together outstanding representatives of very different constituencies—academic administrators, publishers and technology experts—who will join in a discussion of their roles in planning and promoting scientific research, and of their vision and concrete goals. They will address specific challenges, both technical and political, but focus on the "big picture." Bringing these speakers to one podium offers a rare glimpse into different perspectives on the future of scholarship, by those actively engaged in shaping it.
