Following a very successful Workshop held in Canberra on 3 and 4 March 1999, an Advisory Committee was established to "foster widespread ownership of the agenda for change in scholarly communications through the development of a series of promotional and collaborative strategies". It has representatives from university libraries, the Academies, the Australian Vice-Chancellors Committee, the Australian Research Council, the CSIRO and the Department of Education, Training and Youth Affairs. The name, Coalition for Innovation in Scholarly Communication, was selected by the Advisory Committee as an appropriate identification of the broad, yet informal, group of stakeholders represented at the workshop.
