New Issue Brief from Ithaka S+R: “Big Deal: Should Universities Outsource More Core Research Infrastructure?”
Below info/links about a new issue brief written by Roger Schonfeld, Director, Libraries and Scholarly Communication Program, Ithaka S+R.
From the Brief:
Today, an entirely new class of tools and platforms is developing that stands to revolutionize scientific research in academia. These research workflow tools will variously improve transparency, reproducibility, accountability, and efficiency of the scientific research process, an enormous boon to scientists themselves and their universities that have so much invested in academic science. But in assessing and adopting these valuable new research workflow tools, research universities once again face key questions about whether and under what circumstances to outsource core scholarly infrastructure with a principally academic market.
