New Community: DCMI Scholarly Communications

At the DCMI Advisory Board meeting in Singapore on 1 September, a new Community was established, the DCMI Scholarly Communications Community. This group is a forum for individuals and organisations to exchange information, knowledge and general discussion on issues relating to using Dublin Core™ for describing research papers, scholarly texts, data objects and other resources created and used within scholarly communications. The group is moderated by Rosemary Russell of UKOLN and Julie Allinson of the University of York who have both become members of the DCMI Advisory Board. An invitation to participate in the Scholarly Communications Community will be distributed shortly on DC-General and on other lists.
