Definition

Scholarly communication is often defined as “the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs” (Association of College & Research Libraries, “Principles and Strategies for the Reform of Scholarly Communication 1,” 2003, emphasis added).

The Scott Memorial Library and the Center for Teaching & Learning provide resources, training, and support to the Jefferson community in all phases of the publishing lifecycle.‚Äč

LabArchives, the recently acquired electronic lab notebook, will provide Jefferson researchers with a new tool to address challenges starting with the data collection stage. Stay tuned for more information as we integrate it into our research environment.
