Scholarly communication is a cyclical process in which content is generated, reviewed, disseminated, acquired, preserved, discovered, accessed, and assimilated for the advancement of scholarship. The assimilation can potentially lead to generation of new content and thus start a new iteration of the process (or lifecycle).
There are different stakeholders involved in the process, including authors, publishers, libraries, researchers, higher education institutions, and funding agencies. More information about scholarly communication is available from the ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit and this presentation.
