The coronavirus pandemic has both disrupted research and acted as a catalyst for change. This session will present some findings and recommendations from a major study sponsored by Wiley, which explored the effect of the pandemic on aspects of scholarly communication, ranging from funding and university finances, through open access policies and funds, to researcher careers, capacity, publishing choices, and experiences, and attendance at events. The data presented are drawn from two global surveys (with responses from over 10,000 researchers and 600 librarians) and a review of over 100 announcements, articles, and other relevant documents from funders, institutions, and researchers. We’ll share examples of how research/communication activities and processes have evolved, and offer guidance to help early career researchers benefit from these changes.
