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
