"A new initiative from the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) aims to address these 'systemic challenges in a methodical manner.' And with that goal in mind, CARL has released a Scholarly Communications Roadmap (PDF) outlining the actions meant to 'stimulate positive change toward an open, sustainable, effective, and innovative scholarly communication system.'
Publishing Perspectives spoke with Martha Whitehead, president of CARL, about the goals of the roadmap, the challenges it addresses, and the research outputs that might be included in a more effective scholarly communications system.
