While attending a session at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center about scholarly communication (Crisis? What Crisis? The Future of Scholarly Communications and the Health Sciences Academy), I learned more about the Chicago Collaborative. This is a
working group established in 2008 to promote open communication and education among the primary stakeholders in the scholarly scientific communication area. Its membership includes representatives from a number of publishing and editing organizations and representatives from the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) which provides administrative support for the Collaborative.
