Title: Learning and Scholarly Communication in the Age of the Internet
Author(s): Haythornthwaite, Caroline A.
Subject(s): learning learning networks peer production crowdsourcing community
Abstract: Two significant trends in Internet-based production are affecting attitudes and practices in publishing and peer review, and driving change – or at least disruption – in scholarly communication practices. These are collaborative peer production, and the free/libre movement. These trends are driving changes in online participation, the dissemination and retrieval of information, and the approval and evaluation of contributions. Knowledge is now sourced from both crowds and communities, creating different streams of information production. This presentation begins by exploring the attributes of knowledge crowds in comparison to knowledge communities, and then turns to scholarly communication and academic publishing as a “crowd-meets-community” example of the dissemintation of knowledge.
