Scholarly Communication - In 2003, the Association of College and Research Libraries defined 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." Scholarly communication is frequently defined or depicted as a lifecycle documenting the steps involved in the creation, publication, dissemination and discovery of a piece of scholarly research.
The system that Wake Forest Baptist Health uses to track faculty-authored publications is Profiles.
Publications are uploaded daily from Pubmed into Profiles to Wake Forest author profiles.
