The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs.” In an environment that is increasingly global, the ARL Scholarly Communication program encourages the advancement of effective, extensible, sustainable, and economically viable models of scholarly communication that provide barrier-free access to quality information.
