Examining the Present, Building for the Future

By engaging diverse communities of scholarship and practice, ARCS offers a unique and dynamic forum for examining the scholarly communication network, building collaborations, and affecting change. The conference explores what is and what can be, and the values, economics, technology, and roles that influence knowledge sharing and innovation. Conference content addresses three broad themes:

Develop

The process of formulating, developing, and examining new ideas.


Endorse

The existing and emerging systems and metrics through which research is evaluated and recommended.


Share

The modes, models, and standards related to the dissemination of research and scholarship.


We are deeply committed to building a conference that explores and respectively debates the different and even conflicting ideas of what a better system of scholarly communication is and how to build it.
