The Triangle SCI

With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Scholarly Communication Institute (SCI) was hosted from 2003 through 2013 at the University of Virginia, and provided opportunities for leaders in scholarly disciplines, academic libraries, advanced technologies, and higher education administration to study, develop, and implement creative and innovative strategies to advance scholarly communication in the context of the ongoing digital revolution. The web site documents the activities and participants of the first decade of the Scholarly Communication Institute.

In 2014, supported by a new grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Duke University Libraries, the SCI transitioned to the Research Triangle area of North Carolina.

The Triangle SCI aims to bring together groups of scholars, information scientists, librarians, publishers, technologists, and others from both inside and outside academia (i.e., journalists, industry, non-profit organizations, museums, independent researchers) to articulate and begin to address needs and opportunities in the domain of scholarly communications.
