A reflection on the past, the present and the future of scholarly technologies and scholarly practices
This presentation will look at changes in the forms of scholarly communication over time, and review the motivations for changes currently underway. A number of examples will be used to illustrate what is already possible. It will conclude by considering the implications for scholarly practice over the next 10-20 years.
Dr Andrew Treloar is the Director of Technology for the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) (http://ands.org.au/), with particular responsibility for demonstrating the value of bringing together data from different disciplines to answer new questions, and international engagement. In 2008 he led the project to establish ANDS. He is also a member of the Research Data Alliance (http://rd-alliance.org/) Technical Advisory Board and Visiting Fellow at the Data Archive and Network Services organisation in the Netherlands (http://dans.knaw.nl/). His research interests include data management and scholarly communication. He never seems to be able to make enough time for practising his ‘cello, or reading, but does try to prioritise talking to his chickens and working in his vegetable garden and orchard.
