3.3.1 Scholars

Scholars are broadly defined as those who work in a scholarly environment, most typically a university. According to [Getz, 1997], scholars play three roles in our society:

Within the scholarly journal ecology, scholars can play a variety of roles. They can act as producers of messages (in the form of journal articles) by authoring these articles. They can also act as consumers of articles by reading them. Scholars also perform a critical role as editors for journals in conjunction with scholarly societies or journal publishers. Finally, they act as referees for journal articles, thereby performing a filtering or gatekeeper function.
