Frustrated by the lack of access to high-quality library and information science research, a group of US-based librarians and open access activists have launched The IDEALIS, to:
- make it really easy to stay on top of scholcomm-related Library and Information Science (LIS) research;
- recognize those authors who have made their work open access (OA).
Sign up now to receive high-quality, open access LIS research related to all aspects of scholarly communication, via email, Twitter, or RSS.
Each week, IDEALIS editors will recruit the very best scholarly communication literature from across the Web, working with authors to make their research available, ensuring that librarians are connected to excellent research that’s relevant to their work.
THE IDEALIS VISION
The IDEALIS uses the greatest information resource known to humankind–librarians, in order to create a carefully curated journal full of research that is relevant first and foremost to the needs of library practitioners who are interested in scholarly communication.
THE IDEALIS aims to liberate toll access or otherwise difficult to access research in all forms: articles, books, code, data sets, presentations, white papers, and more, with all the tools at disposal.
