The Future of Journal Publishing - OPuS and SYP event
Oxford Brookes University: Gipsy Lane Campus
Speaker: Michael Mabe
Thursday 26 November (Please note new date)
18.30 drinks 19.30 talk begins
For one night only, the SYP and OPuS will be joining forces and gazing into the future to consider whether academic and STM journals have a future. How will new digital technologies and new ways of online communication affect how we publish and use journals, and the greater academic publishing community? Will researchers still communicate and be evaluated by journal publication?
To guide us through these troubled times, we will be hearing from Michael Mabe, CEO of the international association of scientific, technical, medical and scholarly publishers (STM). Be sure to make a date in your diary, for what promises to be a fascinating talk.
This event will take place at the Gipsy Lane Campus of Oxford Brookes University (refreshments will be served before the event in the Buckley Building and the talks will be in the Main Lecture Theatre).
