During the past ten years, different actors from the science policy sector have made different statements on the future design of the scholarly communication system. Moreover, they have been active in trying to change the design. The goal of this text is to give an overview of the different forms of those statements for Germany, the United States and Europe, and to summarise the content of the statements in the form of a synopsis in which the major similarities and differences can be fleshed out. In addition, experts have to determine the most important fields of activity and describe concrete measures and activities. The object of this chapter is to discuss the scholarly communication system through which research results are disseminated and exchanged within the scientific community.
