Modeling Scholarly Communication as an Information System
MetadataShow full item record
Many studies purport to describe the costs and benefits of different models of scholarly communication. However, in order to evaluate these claims, a consistent framework describing the social environment in which these changes occur is needed. This presentation will apply a system of social and intentional modeling to the functions of scholarly publishing, in an attempt to provide a usable framework under which such scenarios can be tested. Drawing on the University of California report on patterns of scholarly communication, the authors have attempted to create a model of scholarly communication using the i* language through which the social impacts of alternative models of scholarly communications can be evaluated.
