Taking place on the last day of the London Book Fair, the Research and Scholarly Publishing Forum will explore themes such as diversity and inclusion in STM publishing, national and international policies for libraries and Web3 technologies, and will be chaired by Rob Johnson, Managing Director of Research Consulting, who also curated the program. Damian Pattinson, Executive Director of eLife Sciences Publications, will launch the conference, which will take place this year in the Olympia Theatre.
Speakers participating in the Research and Scholarly Publishing Forum include Michiel Kolman, SVP Research Networks and Academic Ambassador at Elsevier; Dr Torsten Reimer, Dean of the University of Chicago Library; Julien Roche, Director of Libraries and Learning Centre at the University of Lille and President of LIBER; Isabel Thompson, Head of Product at LabDAO; and Philipp Koellinger, Professor in Social Science Genetics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and co-founder of DeSci Labs.
Sessions at the conference will tackle key topics within academic publishing, including how the widespread adoption of preprints is transforming science communication; shining a light on how diverse (and inclusive) are STM publishers and how they can support an inclusive research agenda; how national and international policies are reshaping the world of scholarly communication; and new insights on Web3 technologies and their potential to change the way science is performed and shared.
