Scholarly Communications at Two Academic Atmospheres: Technology-Based Society and Paper-Based Society
Refaat, Hossam Eldin Mohamed
Online Submission
Scholarly communication is a multi-relationship topic that is interconnected to various fields and disciplines. Efforts of faculty members, librarians, publishers, information specialists, information technologists and archivists have to be combined together in order to establish and create scholarly communication in any society. In addition of being a multi-relation topic, scholarly communication can be considered an important criterion in assessing and evaluating higher education systems in different countries. Excellent higher education systems have excellent scholarly communications systems, and fair or moderate higher education systems have moderate or fair scholarly communication systems and so on. Therefore, one can assume that there is a positive and a strong relationship between the level of scholarly communication in a certain country and the type of that country, where advanced countries have advanced scholarly communication systems, and poor or developing countries have poor or weak scholarly communication systems. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast higher education systems in technology-based societies and paper-based societies. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
