Welcome to Scholarly Communications at Brigham Young University! This site includes information about Scholarly Communication, BYU’s Institutional Repository (IR): ScholarsArchive, and access to image collections that are part of the IR.
The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) defines scholarly communication as “the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs.” (Association of College & Research Libraries, “Principles and Strategies for the Reform of Scholarly Communication 1,” 2003).
