New Ideas in Scholarly Publishing

February 8, 2013

This week, the Chronicle of Education asked its readers a powerful question – “Can a small college library fix what’s wrong with scholarly publishing?”

As the cost of access to and acquisition of information continues to rise, many libraries are beginning to re-imagine their role in scholarly communication. Moving beyond an institutional repository, this week’s article demonstrates that the academic library may have the potential to significantly influence the direction of scholarly publication. Although we may not be there quite yet,”For New Ideas in Scholarly Publishing, Look to the Library,” is a testament not only to the fact that academic libraries are generating creative solutions to the issues in scholarly publication, but also that the world of higher education is beginning to take notice.
