This can include, but is not limited to, a survey of disciplinary or professional societies’ peer-reviewed journals where BI-related scholarship can be published (and the scope of the scholarly domain), as well as other innovative approaches for disseminating BI best practices, data management platforms, and archiving research products through resources such as open or universities digital repositories.
STRAND 4: Approaches for Cultivating Communication and Capacity Building
This can include, but is not limited to, the university or organization resources (such as communications office or research office) dedicated to communicating the impacts of ongoing funded research to different stakeholders and communication approaches for inspiring and engaging next generation of future scientists and engineers.
