Driving the change – less satellite navigation, more collaboration!
We are in an age of change. Scholarly publishing needs embrace and be energised by what is possible and to acknowledge and listen to new demands by all our stakeholders. Collaboration is key – only then can we drive change, developing better ways to support a high quality, efficient system for communicating the outcomes of research. In this year’s conference we bring different perspectives together to think about how we tackle key issues and make progress.**
Speakers will examine what this new course might look like and whether it will it complement or replace existing routes to scholarly communication. Will it offer new opportunities for publishers and what might they be? Should publishers invest more to prove their value in scholarly communication and how might they do this or is their value better communicated by their actions?
The Pre-Conferece Day on Monday, 13 january 2020 is devoted to LEARNING.
Conference venue is the Leibniz Hall in the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin. The Program is being developed by a high level Program Committee (see Committee). In the course of October we will unveil the complete program with the usual actuality and originality.
