Scholarly Publishing and the Internet: A NM&S Themed Section
journal contributionposted on 25.01.2013 by Nicholas Jankowski, Steven Jones
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
As co-editors of this themed section of New Media & Society, we introduce the four articles comprising the section and briefly address facets of the changes transpiring in scholarly publishing and, more generally, scholarly communication. A plethora of issues and developments is related to this transformation and we suggest the diversity and challenges involved. We mention one development in more detail, enhanced publishing, and conclude with promising inroads for theoretical understanding and empirical investigation of how scholarly publishing and communication are evolving.
