The Scholarly Communication Institute announces the release of an executive summary and a full report from its 8th annual meeting at the University of Virginia Library:
This summer, with the support of the Mellon Foundation and UVa Library's Scholars' Lab, SCI invited 36 scholars, publishers, librarians, administrators, digital humanists, and representatives of learned societies to gather for a three-day event examining experimental approaches to new-model scholarly communication.
A full description of the SCI 8 program, including a list of participants, is available on our website, along with the final report, "Emerging Genres in Scholarly Communication:"
SCI 9, to be held in the summer of 2011, will further advance the work outlined in this report. Taking the vision of SCI 8 participants as a point of departure, we will convene an invited group of publishers, librarians, and technologists to work with scholars in further developing and testing new models for scholarly communication.
