The first of a 5-part series of lectures on scholarly communication, this lecture introduces learners to the scholarly communications landscape by exploring its roots in historical and cultural events such as colonization and the growth of the internet. Two activities enable students to explore the legal implications of reusing various materials as well as the speakers and audiences of top journals in occupational therapy.

This lecture was designed for the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences Occupational Therapy Doctorate Program.

This lecture is appropriate for adult and emerging adult learners with very little or basic understandings of scholarly communication, copyright, creative commons, economic aspects of research and academia, and the globalization of scholarly communication.
