Kudos, the award-winning service for broadening research impact, has provided an update on sponsors for its Brave New World research project, which will provide publishers, societies and providers of related services with vital insights to shape strategies for 2021 and beyond. The study will use desk research, tele-interviews and surveys to reveal the implications of COVID-19 for research funding policy, university budgets and practices, and researchers’ workload and workflows.
The project’s newest headline sponsors are Cactus Communications, Wiley and STM, who join the Royal Society of Chemistry and Kudos in steering the project’s scope and direction. Other research partners include the American Chemical Society, American Society for Microbiology and BMJ.
STM’s role in supporting the academic publishing sector means it always need to be up to speed with the latest issues, but the need is particularly acute in the case of COVID-19, which potentially represents the biggest disruption to the sector for a generation. Brave New World is well-timed to provide STM with critical insights into how the pandemic will affect research funding and dissemination, and how publishers will need to respond.
