Scholarly Communication

CNI is deeply involved in issues related to changing practices of scholarship, the restructuring of scholarly publishing, and the broader transformation of scholarly communication and innovation. Some of the topics we address include the development of e-journals, social networking, multi-media content, data visualization, new forms of peer review, and electronic theses and dissertations. We provide a forum for leading trends in this area.
