The pace of change in scholarly communication technology is accelerating. In a relatively short period, digital publishing enabled the development of a new business model - open access - and it's only a few short years ago that article and alternative metrics appeared on the radar. Today, publishers and researchers are bombarded with a stream of new information technology breakthroughs which are developing out of the community but also increasingly feeding in from other industry sectors. Open data and open science, collaborative technologies and networks, and a closer relationship between research information and research management are all currently emerging as important developmental areas. Whilst on the horizon, AI and the internet of things loom large with exciting but nebulous possibilities.
These innovations constantly promise to disrupt and reform scholarly communication, so...
- How do we make sense of these changes as a publisher?
- What are the things that we need to do now?
- How can we learn from the past, what will the future hold and why should we care?
- How do we tell which technologies are truly important and commercially viable?
Join us for this seminar where we will ask and, hopefully, answer all of these questions.
