April 24, 2014 at the  Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill
2014 Allen Press Emerging Trends in Scholarly Publishing™ Seminar

Threat or opportunity? Disruption or reinvention? Creative repositioning or business as usual? How one views the changing state of scholarly publishing is a matter of perspective. Like light passing through glass, concepts can bend and refract as they are transmitted. Seen through the lens of a publisher, open access repositories appear differently than they do through the lens of a librarian. The exposure of open data has different implications for researchers than for funders. An academic filters the meaning of an article’s impact differently than someone in the business office of a journal. Join us at our annual seminar as we adjust our focus to view the visible spectrum of ideas on government mandates, the future of medical and scientific publishing, cutting-edge technologies, and the expanding possibilities of alternative metrics.
