Reilly, Susan ; Schallier, Wouter; Schrimpf, Sabine ; Smit, Eefke; Wilkinson, Max

Scholarly communication is the foundation of modern research where empirical evidence is interpreted and communicated as published hypothesis driven research.  Many current and recent reports highlight the impact of advancing technology on modern research and consequences this has on scholarly communication.  As part of the ODE project this report sought to coalesce current though and opinions from numerous and diverse sources to reveal opportunities for supporting a more connected and integrated scholarly record.  Four perspectives were considered, those of the Researcher who generates or reuses primary data, Publishers who provide the mechanisms to communicate research activities and Libraries & Data enters who maintain and preserve the evidence that underpins scholarly communication and the published record.  This report finds the landscape fragmented and complex where competing interests can sometimes confuse and confound requirements, needs and expectations. Equally the report identifies clear opportunity for all stakeholders to directly enable a more joined up and vital scholarly record of modern research.
