This paper presents suggestions for the design of a scholarly communications system for the IFIP Working Group 8.2 (WG8.2) community. Learned societies such as IFIP have long been important in the system of scholarly communications. With the affordances of the Internet, WG8.2 can play a larger role in promoting scholarly communications to achieve multiple goals: dissemination and archiving of quality research, but also supporting the development of scholars and the research community. A particular goal of this paper is to take a design perspective to suggest new systems to fit the emerging system and to assess the role that WG8.2 might play in deploying them.
