This is a global approach to defining the future of research communication.


Governments and societies globally agree that a vibrant and productive research community underpins a successful knowledge economy but the context,
mechanisms and channels of research communication are in flux. As the pace of change quickens there needs to be analysis of new trends and drivers,
their implications and a future framework. The editors draw together the informed commentary of internationally-renowned experts from all sectors
and backgrounds including Vincent Stuart Smith at the National History Museum, Roger Schonfeld at ITHAKA and Henry Rzepa at Imperial College London.

Split into three sections examining the technological context, changing research behaviour and the roles and responsibilities of other key actors
including researchers, funders, universities, research institutes, publishers and libraries, this volume manages to pinpoint all the key agents of change.
