RCS reports now online
April 15, 2011 Leave a comment
One of the things we do in the RCS project is to write regular reports on issues in research comunication – largely about open access, but including thoughts on other developments like social networking/bibliographhic management websites. These reports are now available on our website – just press the “reports” button above.
There are three reports – and we have also produced two-page (and glossier) discussion papers that are summaries of the main points of each.
The first summary report talks about “the power of open access” to free and potentially transform scholarly communication.
The second is about open access and institutional benefit.
The third looks at ways in which open access can add value to scholarly communication.
The fourth is about some of the issues raised by sharing research on social networking sites.
Please read, comment and use the material as you wish.
