Welcome to the ScholCommLab

Welcome to our first edition of the ScholCommLab newsletter! 

The Scholarly Communications Lab is a research group that analyzes all aspects of scholarly communication in the digital age. We are affiliated with and physically located at the Publishing Program at Simon Fraser University and the School of Information Studies at the University of Ottawa, as well as with PKP and CIRST.

We decided to start this newsletter to occasionally let you know what we have been up to, including news from the study of Review, Promotion, and Tenure Guidelines that many of you requested to receive updates about. 

Read on for news about our latest findings, upcoming events, and more. Interested in collaborating or joining us? Please get in touch or tweet at us with the hashtag #ScholCommLab!

Best regards,
Stefanie & Juan Pablo
