Publishing in an Alternative Reality: Where Do We Go From Here?
The future of scientific and scholarly publishing will depend on adapting its historical strengths and evolved qualities into an engineered media world consisting of unexpected financial, technology, and political realities. How science and scholarship are funded, supported in law and culture, and promoted all will make a difference. This talk will cover where we’ve been, what has changed, and where we might go. The speaker will discuss dealing with a fragmented media space, meeting new expectations, the role of governance, predatory publishing, fake news, innovation, and data publishing, as well as how publishing economics work to move science forward.
