1) Open 2) Semantic 3) Social 4) Mobile


I have been invited to give a presentation at the University of Limerick, Ireland, in early June 2009 at a symposium focused on 'New Paradigms in Scholarly Research’.

I have chosen to address this theme with a presentation titled

Research and Scholarship In The 21st Century: The Paradigms They Are A-Changin' > Open / Semantic / Social / Mobile

I plan to focus on the four broad themes of 1) Open, 2) Semantic, 3) Social, and 4) Mobile.

Under each I plan to profile significant developments that relate to each, namely

Open Access / Open Science / Open Source / Open Standards / Etc.

Valued Added Content and Functionality Within Journals / Monographs / Other Publications

For Examples See My

"E Is for Everything: The Extra-Ordinary, Evolutionary [E-]Journal." The Serials Librarian 41, no. 3/4 (2002): 293-321.[] [Last Article]

“Embedded Multimedia in Electronic Journals." Multimedia Information and Technology 25, no. 4 (1999): 338-343. []

New Age Navigation: Innovative Information Interfaces for Electronic Journals"The Serials Librarian 45, no. 2 (2003): 87 - 123]

As Well As “Adventures in Semantic Publishing: Exemplar Semantic Enhancements of a Research Article” that I recently profiled in my Scholarship 2.0 blog at []


Social networks / Social software / Web 2.0 / Etc.


Mobile data access

Mobile data gathering

Incorporated mobile content within publications

I would be most grateful to learn of particular/specific examples within each subtopic (within a research/scholarly environment) that you believe is specifically/particularly noteworthy to profile in my presentation.

Please submit your recommendations at A(s) Comment(s) On This Blog Entry.

Thanks A Million !

BTW: If There Are Any Colleagues In Ireland That Would Be Interested In Hosting/Sponsoring A Version of The Presentation, Please Do Contact Me ( In Addition To My Presentation At Limerick (June 9), I Plan To Visit Dublin (June 3-5) And Galway (June 6-7).

If A Formal Presentation Is Not Possible, I'd Love To Discuss The Issues With You Over A Pint Or Two ... [:-)]
