101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication - the Changing Research Workflow

Jeroe Bosnam and Bianca Kramer from Utrecht University Library have recently presented a poster  with the intention to address the questions of what drives innovation in scholarly communication and how these innovations change research workflows and may contribute to more open, efficient and good science.

As they explain, changes in this landscape are driven by technology, policies, and culture, but in the end only take place because researchers and other stakeholders decide to adapt their workflows or recommend changes to others. As shown in the poster, the developing landscape is for an important part expressed through changing tool usage. New tools are constantly being developed by researchers themselves, small start-ups or big players, as reflected in the images above.
