2015 Allen Press Emerging Trends in Scholarly Publishing™ Seminar
This year’s seminar, Life in the Fast Lane: Driving Change or Changing Drivers?, received very positive responses. The presentations and slides can be found here. Several of the seminar topics will be recapped in future issues of Allen Press’ newsletter FrontMatter. You can view photos from the event on our Facebook page.
At our future seminars, Allen Press will continue to deliver programs that contribute to the ongoing discussions and debates in the industry. We hope you will join us for the 2016 Allen Press seminar, tentatively to be held in Washington, DC on April 21. We plan to make the 2016 seminar another informative and thought provoking educational experience.
Merging, converging, diverging—the accelerating reinvention of scholarly publishing is a colorful traffic pattern of intersecting ideas, interests, technologies, and innovations. As we whir along the arteries and conduits, we look for signals and opportunities. We make lane adjustments and destination changes. We see exits and entrances. We take risks or play it safe. Join us in a day-long conversation about life in the fast lane, as we explore the relationship between copyright and open access, the potential and promise of evolving digital publishing technologies, tools and initiatives for authors and editors, and the creative rethinking of how to fund and sustain the scholarly endeavor.
Who should attend...
This seminar brings together a cross section of non-profit society publishers, editors, and librarians to network and learn about cutting-edge topics in scholarly and scientific communication.
