Citation & Scholarly Communication


Scholarly communication is a term used by librarians to describe the ways scholars create and share their work with others. It is often characterized as a lifecycle that encompasses the creation, publication, dissemination and discovery of scholarly research. Librarians at Hamilton use teaching the basics of citing sources as an opportunity to engage students in a broader discussion of issues like peer review, publishing practices, and the nature of scholarly conversation in various disciplines.
