  12. 12. Scholars are knowledge producers. Traditionally,that knowledge has appeared in bound volumes,printed by for-profit, third party publishers, for avery narrow audience of other academics withaccess to those volumes. Within this system ofknowledge production, peer-review was a closed,and often very slow, process. The method formeasuring the influence of scholars through“impact factor” (i.e., by counting the number oftimes their articles are cited by other articles) hashardly changed since it was created in the mid-20thcentury.That is changing now.http://justpublics365.commons.gc.cuny.edu/

  43. 43. Digital scholarship• the ability to participate in emerging academic, professional and research practices that depend on digital systems, for example:• use of digital content (including digitised collections of primary and secondary material as well as open content) in teaching, learning and research• use of virtual learning and research environments• use of emergent technologies in research contexts• open publication• the awareness of issues around content discovery, authority, reliability, provenance, licence restrictions, adaption/repurposing and assessment of sources
  44. 44. • Thinking about your particular discipline or role, in what ways do you think digital communication can help or hinder you in developing scholarly activity?
  45. 45. • How could the development of digital scholarly approaches have an impact on other areas of work (eg teaching, student support, administration, management)?
  46. 46. • What new skills do you think are needed by the digitally literate researcher?
