What is Scholarly Communication?

Scholarly Communication refers to the cycle in which authors create, evaluate, disseminate, and preserve new knowledge. This cycle includes a variety of activities such as using existing literature, conducting research, peer reviewing manuscripts and publishing new literature, as well as the collecting, archiving, and making available that new literature. For more information about scholarly communication, contact scholarlycomm@ecu.edu.
