Past Events:

Planning and Promoting the creation of scientific knowledge: Three perspectives

Monday, April 30, 2012


Amy Brand (Assistant Provost for Faculty Appointments | HARVARD UNIVERSITY)

Lynne Herndon (Senior Vice President of Global Academic Relations | ELSEVIER)

"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."

Micah Altman (Director of Research | MIT Libraries) [License of recording: CC-BY-SA]

"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."
