Welcome to the Scholarly Communications Lab

The ScholCommLab is an interdisciplinary team of researchers based in Vancouver and Ottawa, Canada, interested in all aspects of scholarly communication. We explore a wide range of questions using a combination of computational techniques (including applied statistics, machine learning, network analysis, and natural language processing), innovative methods (such as Twitter bot surveys), and traditional qualitative methods (such as interviews, surveys, and focus groups) to investigate how knowledge is produced, disseminated, and used.

We are associated with the Publishing Program and the Public Knowledge Project at Simon Fraser University and with the School of Information Studies at the University of Ottawa.
