Publicação de Comunicação


Nowadays the scientific community is the unequivocal result of the way these last years exponentially emphasized the challenge to define and stabilize parameters that allow communication and evaluation of science to benefit from the necessary credibility it takes to sustain a complex paradigm. Thought after – and as a result of – an international conference on Emerging Publication Models organized within a project devoted, precisely, to the Communication of Science, this book reflects and echoes, through thirteen essays, the concerns of thousands of researchers, professors, students and librarians who feel, about their work (about their future), the permanent pressure of a system whose intricate functioning, to some extent, remains unclear.
