Since the advent of the web in the late nineties (and some would argue, even before), scholars, librarians, publishers and software developers have diligently tried to radically rethink the way scholarship in science and the humanities is communicated. What common threads can we see in these efforts? Why have some succeeded, and many failed?   We’ll take a look back at the problems and recommendations that we explored the Force11 Manifesto, review whether we’ve made any progress in the last 6 years, and explore some promising roads ahead. 

After providing a historical view on some key developments in scholarly communication, Anita de Waard will be joined by a number of panelists onstage for a plenary discussion, including:

  • Jennifer Smith, CoS: Better support for the the scholarly lifecycle
  • Dan Katz, NSCA: Treating data, software, and workflows as first-class objects
  • Cameron Neylon, Curtin U: New models for evaluation and peer review
  • Nicky Agate, MLA: New models for open access
  • Danny Kingsley, Cambridge: New models for libraries
