2016-12-01T22:07:57Z (GMT) by John Hammersley

Global research and collaboration continues to grow at an astonishing rate. This is excellent for science but can prove to be challenging for researchers and institutions. But this challenge of supporting collaboration and authorship best practices in the era of Open Science offers research libraries, institutions and scholarly publishers an opportunity to develop and offer a diverse set of tools, training, and user support services that facilitate global collaboration and knowledge sharing. What options are available? What communication technology is being used that can offer real-time updates? What works best and why? We discuss these developments and share case studies from researchers, institutions and scholarly publishers to provide a broad understanding of how each segment of the scholarly publishing life cycle is responding to these new challenges.
