"Now, as I tell people: I'm extremely paper allergic. All the files are electronic. It makes it much easier to access and work. The second thing is huge facilitation of international collaboration. As one colleague put it, we can interact with someone on another continent sometimes more easily than the person in the next room. The huge efficiency and capability of international collaboration has been enormously beneficial."

Get More from Your Academic Research

In the age of the Internet, the ways you share and use academic research results are changing — rapidly, fundamentally, irreversibly. There’s great potential in change. After all, faster and wider sharing of journal articles, research data, simulations, syntheses, analyses, and other findings fuels the advance of knowledge. It’s a two-way street — sharing research benefits you and others. But will the promise of digital scholarship be fully realized? How will yesterday’s norms adapt to tomorrow’s possibilities?

This website will help you understand the changing landscape and how it affects you and your research. It also offers practical ways to look out for your own interests as a researcher.

A scholarly revolution is underway. It enables you to get a greater return from your research. All you have to do is share it.
