RE-DESIGNING SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION AND ACADEMIC PUBLISHING

The objective of this project is to investigate how the processes and practices of scholarly communication and academic publishing can be re-designed to be more transparent, more participatory and more experimental, this without getting rid of established quality mechanisms. The objective is also to construct a framework and a design process for how to develop an “alternative” academic journal.
