Scholars Speak: Interviews with scholars in various disciplines

From SPARC's June 10 press release:

The Create Change Web site emphasizes the rapid and irreversible changes occurring in the ways faculty share and use academic research results. The site outlines how the advancement of knowledge is fueled by accelerating and enhancing sharing - of journal articles, research data, simulations, syntheses, analyses and other findings. Create Change offers faculty practical ways to look out for their own interests as researchers and delivers the personal perspectives of scholars in 10 different disciplines, from music therapy to chemistry to microbiology, on the benefits of sharing. New interviews are added regularly.


Comments are drawn from full-length interviews published on the Create Change Web site at http://www.createchange.org and target the advantages of depositing works in a digital repository, the ways communication should change in the digital environment, the impact of Open Access and how to maximize scientific progress.
