ALPSP Training Course: Journal Development 1: Practical plans for improving journal success - 07 Feb 2018 This workshop provides an essential practical introduction to the business of developing journals. The course is highly interactive and participants will undertake realistic exercises to familiarise themselves with methods of evaluating their current journal (or portfolio) and provide ideas on how they can introduce changes. Although familiarity with the scholarly publishing environment is required, part of the course will also involve discussion of the role of journals in the present research environment and will consider what threats and opportunities exist for current publishing models.

NFAIS 2018 Annual Conference - 28 Feb 2018 In recent years, dramatic changes in scholarly publishing have altered how researchers consume, exchange, interact with, and disseminate scholarly communications. These dramatic changes will leave a footprint on global scholarship of the future but presently are plagued by diverging views, and therefore, potentially diverging paths toward the same goals. The NFAIS 2018 Annual Conference will examine where we have been, the forces that impact future directions, who the players are, and how we create a future where the researchers gain value through the roles each stakeholder plays toward a successful transformation. The conference takes an in-depth view of this information transformation, and the drive towards more open, global, and collaborative.
