Scholarship in the digital age

This other article in the new Educause Review is also relevant — “Scholars, Scholarship, and the Scholarly Enterprise in the Digital Age.”

More important, from an access point of view, what now unifies scholarship is not the gated cities or chained books but is, rather, the openly available resources, tools, experts, and collaborative environments. Such environments open up knowledge, innovation, and learning, allowing them to become, to a great extent, transparently accessible. Openness, I believe, presses in a strong and positive way on all of the scholarships named by Boyer: discovery, integration, application, and teaching.
