What are scholars’ research paths? How do they get to the content they need? With the multitude of platforms and publishers and aggregators in today’s online research landscape, navigating through the sea of content is increasingly challenging for researchers at every level as they try to find not just the right search results, but a satisfying research experience.
Oxford University Press and Library Journal ask: How can libraries and publishers collaborate to deliver a successful research experience for scholars? Topics will cover collaborative publishing initiatives, discoverability and usage tools at the publisher and library level, and paths of inquiry in an ideal research environment.
