‘We’re Not Who We Used to Be’: Shifting Relationship Dynamics and Imbalances in an Open Access World
Sunday, 7 April 2019
Telford International Centre | Telford, UK
The Society for Scholarly Publishing is delighted to collaborate with UKSG on a Pre-Conference exploring the theme of ‘We’re Not Who We Used to Be’: Shifting Relationship Dynamics and Imbalances in an Open Access World.
As some parts of the world push towards a fully gold OA publishing ecosystem, we will explore how the changing landscape of mandates and business models is affecting (and how it will continue to affect) the relationships and collaboration between all stakeholders, old and new. As we seek to ensure inclusion, diversification, and ‘openness’ in its broadest sense, yet arguably still exist in an environment that features imbalances of representation and visibility of impact, how will these interrelationships evolve in a predominantly gold-OA world? What needs to be done to redress imbalances where they exist? With representation from publishers, libraries, funders, intermediaries and the author-researcher community itself, we will provide analysis and case studies about how roles and interrelationships across the scholarly community have adapted–and will continue to change. Practical actions and recommendations will be shared for reflection in support of future planning through a mix of presentations and roundtable discussions.
