Presented by Robert Glushko, Associate Chief Librarian, Western Libraries, as part of the FIMS Seminar Series.

Abstract: In the past decade, although scholarly publishing diversified to offer multiple forms of knowledge dissemination, most publishing remains unchanged, with the most influential venues taking the form of traditional journals: groups of articles bound in periodic, space restricted, issues. Scholarly publishing in the digital age is often a transformation of physical forms and norms into digital media: an easy and familiar solution that fails to adapt to the realities of the new medium.  As a remedy, we propose Kinetic Publishing, a new model of scholarly thought, discussion, and dissemination.
