Educopia Releases “Mapping the Scholarly Communication Landscape – 2019 Census” Report and Data VisualizationsBy Katherine Skinner
We are pleased to announce a new report released by Educopia Publications: “Mapping the Scholarly Communication Landscape – 2019 Census.” The paper, authored by Katherine Skinner (Educopia) and edited by David Lewis, Mike Roy, and Melanie Schlosser, is the product of an Andrew W.
