Recent ARL-Ithaka Report on Current Models of Digital Scholarly Communication

Ithaka, one of the groups represented at today's Assembly, recently partnered with ARL on an important new report about current models of digital scholarship in universities.

Read the report here [PDF]. Some highlights:
  • Purely digital publications are often directed at niche audiences.
  • Web 2.0 technologies have blurred lines between resource types (for example, a blog is or could be a type of journal)
  • Traditional norms maintain power even as scholars innovate.
