Abstract

Scholarly practices are constantly evolving alongside the technological advances and social factors that support them. Modern advances of participatory technologies influence what it means to be a scholar in our time. This chapter explores emergent forms of technology-influenced scholarship, identifies broad categorizations of these practices (including digital scholarship, social scholarship, open scholarship, public scholarship, and networked participatory scholarship), and discusses common themes and implications within a larger framework of their effect on scholarly identity. Understanding the relationship between emergent forms of scholarship and the technologies with which they co-evolve may enable scholars to participate more meaningfully in the public sphere while still preserving their values and authentic identity.
