<p>Poster presented at <a href="https://www.force11.org/meetings/force2015">Force 2015</a> https://www.force11.org/meetings/force2015</p> <p>In the fast developing world of scholarly communication it is good to take a step back and look at the patterns and processes of innovation in this field. To this end, we have selected 101 innovations (in the form of tools & sites) and graphically displayed them by year and also according to 6 phases of the research workflow: collection of data & literature, analysis, writing, publishing & archiving, outreach and assessment. This overview facilitates discussion on processes of innovation, disruption, diffusion, consolidation, competition and success, but also of failure and stagnation, over the last 3 decades. We describe some of the trends, expectations, uncertainties, opportunities and challenges within each of the workflow phases. Also, based on the graphical overview we present a juxtaposition of typical traditional, innovative and experimental workflows.</p> <p><b>Accompanying material (see links below)</b></p> <p>1) <a href="https://innoscholcomm.typeform.com/to/Csvr7b?source=101">Survey on real-world tool usage (open until Feb 2016)</a></p> <p>2) <a href="http://bit.ly/innoscholcomm-list">Database of 400+ tools (Google Spreadsheet)</a></p> <p>3) <a href="http://innoscholcomm.silk.co ">Database of 101 tools + workflows</a></p>
