Video: Force11: The Future of Research Communications & E-Scholarship

Force11: The Future of Research Communications and E-Scholarship, a project briefing presented at CNI’s fall 2012 membership meeting by Maryann Martone of the University of California, San Diego, is now available on CNI’s two video channels:



Force11 is a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that has arisen organically to help facilitate the change toward improved knowledge creation and sharing. Individually and collectively, Force11 aims to bring about a change in modern scholarly communications through the effective use of information technology, which will also broaden to include, for example, the publication of software tools, research communication via social media channels, and sharing data and workflows in innovative ways. Force11 can be seen as a starting point for a community that will potentially grow and be augmented by individual and collective efforts by the participants and others.
