The research program of the Canada Research Chair on the Transformations of Scholarly Communication is focussed on:

  1. the modes of knowledge production and their socio-demographic determinants,
  2. the modes of dissemination and the utilisation of new types of knowledge and,
  3. the attribution of scientific capital and the values associated with this process.

This research aims to better understand the evolution in research practices and publication in the digital era, as well as their effects on the structure of the scientific community. This knowledge will help inform the development of public policy related to scientific research and technology.
