*NISO September Virtual Conference: **Scholarly Communication Models:
Evolution or Revolution? *

Virtual conferences are 5-6 hour conferences held online in webinar-like
formats, with occasional breaks in the schedule for participants. The
longer length allows the depth of coverage of a conference coupled with the
convenience of a webinar.

*Date:* September 23, 2015

*Time: *11:00 am - 5:00 pm Eastern

*Event webpage: *


Scholarly communication deals with the systems and processes involved in
the creation and dissemination of knowledge. Scholars can’t help but have
to navigate the complex issues around author rights, access, costs, new
models of publishing, peer-review, and compliance with research funder
policies. These scholarly communication components are continually evolving
along with changes in technical infrastructure, the economics of
publishing, knowledge preservation, and social practice.

Learn how scholarly communication models are evolving from the authors’,
publishers’, and libraries’ perspectives. The presenters would share and
discuss their approach in adapting and navigating the issues surrounding
this topic.
