As a follow on to our work with the Evolving Scholarly Record, this report by Brian Lavoie and Constance Malpas presents a view of future stewardship models of the evolving scholarly record and their practical implications. The scholarly record is increasingly digital and networked, while at the same time expanding in both the volume and diversity of the material it contains. The long-term future of the scholarly record cannot be effectively secured with traditional stewardship models developed for print materials. This report describes the key features of future stewardship models adapted to the characteristics of a digital, networked scholarly record, and discusses some practical implications of implementing these models.

You can read the report and also read Brian Lavoie’s post on our group blog, HangingTogether, Six Takeaways: Stewardship of the Evolving Scholarly Record.
