Molly Barton: What would Wu-Tang do? | The Bookseller

Molly Barton: What would Wu-Tang do? | The Bookseller | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Editor's Note: Molly Barton joins us here with the first of her articles as a regular contributor to The FutureBook. Barton's eye here is on "the rise of creative collectives." My own favourite creative collective is Magnum Photos, formed in Paris by Henri Cartier-Bresson and associates in 1947. Its photographers retain copyright on their work. And the collective's staffers support the photographer-members — not direct them. A former global digital director with Penguin, Barton writes, "The publishing houses have little to no consumer awareness and continually cede brand status to authors (which is why traditional book marketing is so inefficient)." Authors' best hope, she suggests, may be in "pooling their talents and early fan bases." — Porter Anderson

Call for Papers: “Transforming Scholarship: Open Access, Data Sharing, and Emerging Forms of Publication” | ICIS: Innovating Communication in Scholarship

Powerful changes are impacting traditional systems of research publication, academic credit, research quality assessment, and the meaning of “publication.” At the same time, traditional publishing models continue to shape how scholars produce and exchange knowledge. Understanding the scholarly communication system and its balance between transformation and continuity is a key goal for science and technology studies, as publishing practices affect scholars and scientists across all fields and levels. These changes also frame the policies of administrators evaluating and funding them, and of libraries confronting new technologies. The increasing scale and interdisciplinary nature of collaborations, as well as the growing reliance on cyberinfrastructures for producing and disseminating research, are central transformations that require a critical, theoretically oriented approach that encompasses the significance of these trends beyond communication.
