Scholarly communication will likely become shapeless and fluid, taking no definitive form, and blurring the lines completely between collaboration and discoverability. As a result, the process by which academics and scholars share and publish their research findings will likely shift more than anything else does. The phases of the scholarly communication life cycle will no longer be to first research then author and publish; and lastly to store and archive. Rather it will start to look a bit more like this – a researcher is conducting their research, and in live time their findings are shared and published to the community at-large
That being said, the boundaries of the “article” have definitely become more porous over the past decade or so, and probably will become more so as time goes on. Preprints, blog posts, data sets, etc. will all continue to be important products of scholarship and each will continue to serve some of the functions that were, in the past, served only by traditionally-configured articles.
