The Scholarly Communications Committee's activities throughout the year focus on providing information and support to the Georgetown community on the following issues:
Exploring the range publishing models, from traditional to alternative and innovative models
Disseminating research and scholarship to the broadest possible audience
Retaining rights to your research and scholarship
Increasing dialog among departments on campus around a broad range of scholarly communications issues
The committee has been hosting symposia and other events for over ten years. Our Scholarly Communication Symposium series is designed to allow an open forum for a wider discussion of how research and scholarship are changing and for continuing University dialogue surrounding initiatives in scholarly communication.
