Scholarly Communication is an interdisciplinary field that studies “the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use.” This page is dedicated to furthering the study of scholarly communication with a historical perspective.
The page is run by Shawn Martin, IDEASc Fellow at Indiana University Bloomington. Shawn’s research focuses on scholarly communication and the history of academic publishing. Previously, Shawn was the scholarly communication librarian at the University of Pennsylvania and an adjunct professor at the College of Computing and Informatics at Drexel University. He has also worked as the project librarian for the Text Creation Partnership at the University of Michigan and has been involved with multiple international digital humanities and digital library projects.
