    Scholarly and Research Communication is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, Open Access online journal that publishes original contributions to the understanding of production, dissemination, and usage of knowledge. It emphasizes the dynamics of representation and changing organizational elements, including technologically mediated workflows, ownership, and legal structures.

    The journal provides scholarly assessment and editorial evaluation and fine tuning without charge. Authors must provide publishable copy or purchase needed editorial services from the journal.

SRC's special "Science Communication" issue is now available online. We would like to invite other Canadian scientients (all disciplines) to add to this growing dialogue by submitting personal commentaries on their ideals and realities and the dynamics of their science, including the need for the free exchange of ideas, data, and research findings. Guest editor Britt Hall and the SRC see this initiative as contributing to science literacy and to encourgaing young Canadians to consider a career in science.
