Facilitating Sharing Among Researchers

Research is improved when researchers are able to connect with other individuals to share results, concepts, theories, and disagreements. Researchers thrive in an open environment where theories and results are readily available. Researchers are motivated by further scientific discovery, access for their informational needs, and promotion of their own or others' work. Non-researchers also gain expertise and knowledge when they have access to current research. Traditional publishing, however, is a snapshot in time for research results and inherently does not encourage conversations and sharing. With technological and social tools, librarians and publishers can facilitate sharing among researchers and the public. How can publishers and librarians partner to improve collaboration and sharing? This discussion will bring together librarians and publishers for a frank dialogue discussing the values of librarianship in facilitating open access to information and publisher considerations.
