Designing scholarly communications--A discussion paper for the Perth Working Conference on Human Benefit through the Diffusion of IS Design Science Research

The attached paper (available to logged in users) presents suggestions for the design of a scholarly communications system for the IFIP Working Group 8.2 (WG8.2) community. Learned societies such as IFIP have long been important in the system of scholarly communications. With the affordances of the Internet, WG8.2 can play a larger role in promoting scholarly communications to achieve multiple goals: dissemination and archiving of quality research, but also supporting the development of scholars and the research community.

OASIS 2009 registration

We've learned that the AIS registration system has a technical glitch that is showing the OASIS workshop as full, and participants are not currently able to register for the workshop as a result. AIS is working on solving this problem, but rest assured that the workshop is not full and we welcome your participation in Phoenix next month! An announcement will be posted on this site when workshop registration becomes available and we expect to be able to take late registrations at the door, although pre-registration is preferred.
