چکیده

Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to design a conceptual model for the scholarly communication system in the Iranian Research Institute for Scientific Information and Documentation ‪(IranDoc)‬.‎

Design/methodology/approach– Some models have been developed to describe the scholarly communication process in different contexts but few considered this process from the organizational point of view.‎ In the model, the organizational structure of scientific communication in IranDoc was considered.‎ This model has four levels:, e.g.‎ person-to-persons (P2P) scientific communication, person-to-organizations (P2O) scientific communication, organization-to-organizations (O2O) scientific communication, and organization-to-persons (O2P) scientific communication.‎

Findings– A conceptual model for scholarly communication within IranDoc is designed.‎ Scientific and research institutions can establish their scholarly communication system by customizing the model.‎

Research limitations/implications– The model is fairly conceptual and does not refer to technological aspects of the system.‎ The implementation implications of the model are also not considered, so it could not be used directly in action.‎ As it has been developed specifically for IranDoc, it may need some revisions to be used in other contexts.‎

Originality/value– Compared to the earlier models, the main differences and innovations in the model are: its organizational structure;‎ detailed functions of the organizational scholarly-communication;‎ researcher based approach of the model;‎ and different and new levels of the model analysis.‎ This model can be applied in research institutions and generalized to those institutions in which information plays an important role.‎
