Scholarly Communication

What is scholarly communication? 

“The system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs.” (ACRL 

The cycle of scholarly communication with each step in the process: research, data collection, and analysis; authoring; peer review; publication; discovery and dissemination
