In partnership with
A collaborative 1-day forum for publishers, librarians and academics
Monday 3 December, London Art House
Building on the success of the inaugural event in 2017, this one day conference provides a unique environment for the three stakeholder groups within scholarly communication – publishers, librarians and academics – to discuss the issues they face in the creation, dissemination and use of scholarly research
The forum is organised by Research Information magazine, in partnership with Info International.
Who should attend?
This one-day conference will use the results of an industry survey (Challenges in Scholarly Publishing 2018) as the starting point for a day of interactive workshops – with each delegate attending focused sessions on publisher, librarian and academic perspectives.
Delegates will have a unique opportunity to learn from other stakeholder groups, and take away practical strategic and operational action points back to their own institution.
All delegates will receive a copy of the full survey results on the day, as well as the opportunity to view the results online a few days before the event to help prepare.
The day will provide invaluable insight for those in the scholarly publishing community seeking to strengthen collaborative links with other stakeholder representatives, and a unique opportunity to spend face-to-face time with those from ‘the other side of the fence’ – whether you’re an academic, a librarian, a publisher, or a service provider.
