Critical Knowledge Forum: A Modern Take on Research Communication with Jennifer Gibson
This talk will offer a modern take on research communication and publishing and aims to inspire the Adelphi campus community to take just a few actions to help us get there.
What if we could start all over again? Knowing what we know now, about the needs for research and the opportunities to improve the human condition, about the power of the Internet, and about the importance of the global village, what would we want publishing to look like? How would we use instant online sharing? How would we tap into experts in other corners of the globe? How would we design a system that truly accelerates discovery for the benefit of everyone?
