BRAVE NEW WORLD:
SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION AFTER COVID
The effect of the pandemic on research funding, university budgets, and researchers' needs
The coronavirus pandemic has both disrupted research, and acted as a catalyst for change. Publishers, societies and providers of related services urgently need intelligence and analysis to inform short-term responses and longer-term planning.
This study, carried out between November 2020 and February 2021, provides up-to-the-minute insight drawn from two global surveys (with responses from 10,000+ researchers and 600+ librarians) and a review of over 100 announcements, articles and other relevant documents from funders, institutions and researchers.
Expert analysis highlights the key implications, identifies the emerging opportunities, and sets out clear recommendations for putting the report's findings into practice.
