If you could reinvent scholarly communication from scratch, what would it look like for you?

How research is performed, disseminated and communicated is currently undergoing a number of exciting developments that could change the landscape forever. Research projects are more interdisciplinary than ever before, collaboration across disciplines that had not traditionally intersected is now common and new research disciplines are blossoming thanks to methodological and technical advances. At the same time, scholarly publishing is also experiencing substantial changes: over the last decades publishing has gone from print to online, Open Access journals launched at the turn of the century aiming to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the internet and experimental findings and medical evidence are now accessible to new and broader audiences. While the journal article has traditionally represented the final step in the publication process and the currency for research assessment, research outputs can also encompass data, software, tools or educational materials. In addition, the increase in preprint use and discussions about ongoing or published research in social media mean that research communication is no longer the exclusive realm of peer-reviewed journals.

In this event we will explore initiatives that are driving change in the current research ecosystem and discuss what scholarly communication will look like in 2030 and beyond.
