The Evolving Scholarly Record and the Evolving Stewardship Ecosystem – Workshop Series

This series of workshops built on the framework presented in the OCLC Research report, The Evolving Scholarly Record.

The Scholarly Record is expanding to include many kinds and forms of information beyond the traditional formal outputs. Research methods, models, software, data, blogs, presentations, discussions, images, survey findings and much more are now part of the evolving scholarly record.  Libraries are reconceiving their roles regarding stewardship and curation, but it is obvious that libraries and archives are not the only stakeholders in the emerging ecosystem. 

These workshops explored the boundaries of the scholarly record and the curation roles of various stakeholders. Open access policies, funder requirements, and new venues for scholarly communication are blurring the roles of the various stakeholders, including commercial publishers, governmental entities, and universities. The impact of changes in digital scholarship requires a collective effort to insure the integrity of the scholarly record.

Participants explored the responsibilities of research libraries, data archives, and other stewards of research output—and identified new alliances that should be forged to create a reliable ecosystem for preserving the scholarly record and making it accessible.
