The Process of Scholarly Communication: The State of the Art - A Learned Society Publisher's Perspective

Author:

Sally Hardy

Abstract

This presentation reflects on scholarly communication within the learned society sector taking the Regional Studies Association as a case study. It reviews the traditional forms of working of the Association and its responses to readily available technologies via the Internet and World Wide Web, and why the Association has embraced the use of some aspects of technology but drawn back from moving rapidly down the electronic publishing route. Drawing on the experiences of two other learned societies which are taking part in different pilot projects in this area, it will argue that for many learned societies a prudent approach would be wise, but that it is necessary to monitor the potential of this technology in improving benefits to members.
