With panelists Professor Anne Rosenwald, Department of Biology,
This symposium brought together a panel of experts in computer science and biology to discuss the ways that scientists use the Internet to create knowledge, disseminate and share data and communicate ideas, opinions and concepts. With examples from their own experience, the panelists highlighted some of the greatest opportunities and challenges new technologies offer the sciences. They also explored the issue of whether the use of the Internet for scholarly communication in science differs from its use in the social sciences or humanities.

At universities, social media enjoy great popularity as tools to connect privately and informally with friends and colleagues. In addition, these tools offer features that allow users to promote and highlight their professional or academic work, to follow the work of others, and even to engage in new types of collaborative research.

"I believe that publishers, often with the help of participating researchers, will continue to add value to content by inventing new tools to enhance their workflows. I believe a form of peer review will always exist and that as information proliferates, the need for filtering and curation will also grow. I believe that publishing will be funded in a multitude of ways. And I hope that science will continue to play a major role in scholarship and an increasing one in an informed society."

"Since knowledge is not a private good, a pure market approach leads to underprovisioning. Planning for access to the scholarly record should include planning for long-term access beyond the life of a single institution. Important problems in scholarly communications, information science & scholarship increasingly require diverse multi-disciplinary approaches."
