Digital scholarship and publishing

There is an audio with Martin Weller, the author of the above book, here. It covers the open access debate and the new forms of publishing that are now available for communicating research and ideas. Things like blogs, youtube and Twitter and the like might create opportunities for academics to communicate their work, the problem is the same as for musicians doing the same: how do you get heard over the din of competing voices? I would also be about more hopeful that people might find ways to be innovative within journals. This might be overly optimistic, but we don’t want creativity to be out on the margins.
