Scholarly Communications Section

"The Scholarly Communication Section of the Academic Division of SLA provides a forum for members who are interested in, or responsible for, projects related to any area of the scholarly communication system. Some of the topics to be discussed include open access publishing in general, institutional repositories, institutional open access policies, funder mandates, peer review, tenure and promotion policies, campus publishing initiatives, and more. The Section will monitor and report on developments in scholarly communications."

The Section was approved for the Academic Division at the 2013 SLA Conference in San Diego.
