Abstract: Global collaboration is increasingly important across universities and conservation biology organizations. In this example, a partnership resulted in the creation of a short-course aimed at exploring communication forms and digital tools that facilitate scholarly communication in conservation biology. Questions the authors hoped to answer in the course were: What are the benefits and limitations of these tools? How can researchers in conservation biology use these methods to share data, show impact and connect to colleagues and stakeholders? Why is open access even more important in this highly collaborative scholarly environment? How can communities of interest benefit scientists and the public?
