Information Access Seminar

Science Nationalism

Friday, January 29, 2021
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PST

Clifford Lynch

In late 2020 I led a seminar discussion on emerging science nationalism and its implications for the research enterprise and the global system of scholarly communication. This was partially to do some preliminary exploration of issues to be examined in two Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) executive roundtables in mid-December 2020. In this seminar I’ll present some of the issues, themes, and research questions that emerged from these roundtables for further discussion; CNI expects to release a report on the roundtables prior to the seminar, and we’ll share the link when available.
