Podcasting has become a common vehicle for journalism and audio drama, for entertainment and education. But can podcasts be a form of scholarly communication? As digital and multimedia publishing offer new and intriguing pathways to public consumption, scholars are exploring alternatives to traditional publication venues that may increase the reach and audience for their research. Generated outside the existing systems of review, evaluation, and publication that structure the lifecycle of traditional formats such as monographs and articles, podcasts also present challenges to scholars and publishers in quality control, dissemination, archiving and academic recognition.

In this workshop, participants think critically about podcasting as a new form of scholarly communications by creating a podcast of their own.
