Open Access Community Events
Shifting Power Centres in Scholarly Communications: Implications and future roles for libraries and publishers (ALPSP UKSG Joint Event)
13 November£190 – £240
The pace of change in our sector has accelerated – and that change has also become more wide-reaching. Where does all of this change leave researchers – are they already realising new benefits, or are they suffering from having one foot in the old world and one in the new? What will happen next, and how should scholarly publishers and librarians prepare?
This year’s One-Day Conference is a partnership between UKSG and ALPSP, two organizations well placed to understand and address the scholarly communications’ community’s needs and concerns in this rapidly evolving ecosystem. The event promises strategic insight, practical takeaways and robust discussion among research funders, academics, librarians and publishers.
