New-Model Scholarly Communication: Road Map for Change

SCI 9 will build upon the achievements of previous institutes, particularly SCI 8 (2010), which explored new publishing forms that take advantage of the affordances of digital technologies.

Scholars often begin with evidence in digital form, use digital tools to examine and analyze evidence, build arguments and present evidence in digital genres, and disseminate the results electronically.
