What is scholarly communications?
Scholarly communications refers to the creation, dissemination and use of scholarly works. Under the old model, scholars were bound by the requirements of publishers in order to publish scholarship. However, a new model is emerging as a result of technological advancements and the desire to share information without the confines and costs associated with traditional publishing.
The Texas Tech University Libraries is engaging in this new model for the benefit of the Texas Tech University community. ThinkTech is a new service being offered by the University Libraries.
