Published on

This presentation was part of a Roundtable on Scholarly Publishing and its Digital Futures, the description of which is below. For my contribution, i described four themes that govern how JSTOR Labs approaches change and thus tries to shape or at least point to the future of scholarly communication.

The digital transformation of humanistic scholarship and unprecedented access to digitized and digital sources not only impacts our methodologies for research and education, it also requires us to rethink the way critical work and scholarly resources get published and communicated. Important issues such as peer review, collaboration, multimodal textuality, embedded access to sources and dynamic visualizations, or sustainability are at the core of considerations that reshape scholarly publishing. This roundtable will offer insights into these transformations from scholarly, library, university press, and scholarly resource perspectives.
