The Society for Scholarly Publishing as announced its second annual pre-conference seminar, ‘Seeking Sustainability: Publishing Models for an Open Access Age,’ scheduled for March 29, at The Brighton Centre, before UKSG’s 43rd Annual Conference.
UKSG is a charitable organization offering educational programs to members of the scholarly communication and knowledge communities, including librarians, researchers, funders, and publishers. Attendees of the UKSG annual conference come together to discuss current trends and issues of interest, including new technologies, publishing ethics, accessibility, and open access models.
Sponsored by Cabells Scholarly Analytics and the Charleston Conference, this year’s highly interactive pre-conference seminar explores Open Access models that are sustainable and adaptable. Hear from publishers and librarians testing these new models and their long-term viability, as well as the concerns of small and society organisations that fear they may be left out of the discussion.
The program includes a keynote by Scholarly Kitchen chef, Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, a panel exploring models-in-progress, and small group discussions focusing on critical issues and possible next steps.
This year’s speakers include: Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Heather Staines, Head of Partnerships, Knowledge Futures Group; Scott Delman, Director of Publications, ACM; Martin Paul Eve, Birkbeck, University of London and the Open Library of the Humanities; Steven Hall, Managing Director, IOP Publishing; and Jasmin Lange, Chief Publishing Officer, Brill.
Space is limited. Those who register by February 21 will receive a 25% discount on pre-conference registration. Both the SSP pre-conference and UKSG Annual Conference will be held at The Brighton Centre in Brighton.
