ALPSP UKSG Joint Event: Shifting Power Centres in Scholarly Communications: Implications and future roles for libraries and publishers

13/11/2019 @ 09:30 - 17:30



The pace of change in our sector has accelerated – and that change has also become more wide-reaching. We are moving beyond the “fall out” from the digital revolution – and its implications for user behaviors, customer expectations, product formats and business models – into a much bigger shift, where established roles and accepted models are being questioned. Boundaries are blurring, with funders and universities taking greater ownership of how research is communicated, and publishers and libraries exploring new areas in which they can provide services and support. 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/Seminar is a partnership between UKSG and ALPSP, two organizations uniquely 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.
