OCLC Research Publishes Framework to Help Organize, Drive Discussions About Evolving Scholarly Record
To help organize and drive discussions about the evolving scholarly record, OCLC Research developed a framework that has been published in the report, The Evolving Scholarly Record.
Written by Brian Lavoie, Eric Childress, Ricky Erway, Ixchel Faniel, Constance Malpas, Jennifer Schaffner, and Titia van der Werf, the report provides a high-level view of the categories of material the scholarly record potentially encompasses, as well as the key stakeholder roles associated with the creation, management, and use of the scholarly record.
Highlights From the Report
