Nicko Goncharoff to Join NFAIS Half-Day Virtual Workshop
With technological advancements and the advent of Social Collaborative Networks (SCNs), sharing work between researchers is becoming easier. Researchers are now building profiles to communicate and exchange scholarly content across a broad range of platforms. Social networks are helping research continue to break down global borders in their respective communities. NFAIS is hosting a half-day virtual workshop that will examine the trends, the market, and the stakeholders most impacted.
Digital Science Chief Business Development Officer Nicko Goncharoff will discuss publisher efforts, challenges and opportunities around article sharing in an upcoming NFAIS Workshop, “How Social Should Social Collaborative Networks (SCNs) Be?” Nicko will talk about the work of the STM Reference Group on Scholarly Collaborative Networks, which produced the first set of community guidelines on scholarly article sharing, incorporating feedback from institutions, researchers and other stakeholders. He will also review article sharing initiatives by publishers and technology companies and make a case for why all publishers should be considering a sharing strategy.
