Bibliodiversity in scholarly communications has been in decline for several decades. Yet, we need a diversity in services and platforms, funding mechanisms, and evaluation measures in order to allow the scholarly communication system to accommodate the different workflows, languages, publication outputs, and research topics that support the needs and epistemic pluralism of different research communities. There are two other panels at Force11 focusing already on other systemic issues contributing to the current landscape: evaluation measures and funding mechanism. This panel will delve into the notion of a how a highly distributed and decoupled ecosystem can help scholarly communications become more inclusive. Panelists will present their ideas on the benefits of such an approach; explain how it can be implemented and scale across institutions, countries, and domains; and will present some specific examples of projects that are already under way.
