Scholarly Communications

Scholarly Communication refers to the cycle in which authors create, evaluate, disseminate, and preserve new knowledge. This cycle includes a variety of activities such as using existing literature, conducting research, peer reviewing manuscripts and publishing new literature, as well as the collecting, archiving, and making available that new literature.
