Revolution and Evolution in Scientific Communication: Moving from Restricted Dissemination of Publicly-Funded Knowledge to Open Knowledge

This presentation by Paul F. Uhlir will describe the author's vision of open knowledge environments (OKEs) for digitally networked scientific communication. OKEs would bring the scholarly communication function back into the universities, much like law journals are published in the United States today. But the OKEs would go beyond the law journal model, integrating the disparate institutional open access developments in a holistic, thematic hub of interactive education and research. The production, dissemination, and use of public knowledge thus would be managed directly by the universities themselves, eliminating the artificial market created by the legacy intermediaries for these public goods and supporting the universities' mission. Paul Uhlir is Director of the Board on Research Data and Information at the U.S. National Research Council, Washington, and Director of the InterAcademy Panel on International Issues' Program on Digital Knowlege Resources and Infrastrucure in Developing Countries.
