Future of Research Communications Network

Via Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

How we read, write, and communicate science is changing profoundly under the influence of new technologies. In several fields there are initiatives to  enhance, enable or entirely replace formerly ingrained forms of scientific communication. Scientists, publishers, and vendors in various disciplines are developing methods and tools to improve the process of creation, reviewing and/or editing of scientific content; working on technologies and techniques to interpret, visualize, or connect scientific knowledge more effectively; and formulating concepts, tools, standards, and techniques for sharing multimodal and research data. The purpose of the Future of Research Communication (FoRC) Network site is to bring together researchers from these different disciplines, whose core research goal is changing the formats, standards, and means by which we communicate science. We believe this can be a truly important step in bringing about this long-awaited sea change in scientific publishing. Illustration by: dave-cutler
