What is Scholarly Communication?

Scholarly communication involves the creation, exchange, and dissemination of knowledge within the context of academic discourse.   

It includes all aspects of knowledge creation.  We usually represent this in the form of a cycle.  There are 6 major parts to the cycle.  

  1. Research and Data Collection
  2. Analysis and Interpretation
  3. Authorship and Presentation
  4. .Sharing and Networking
  5. Publishing and Dissemination
  6. Archiving and Preservation

Older data in published or archived articles can then be used in research and data collection, starting the cycle over again.
