CALJ Participation in the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP)

In September of this year, two CALJ members had an opportunity to attend the annual ALPSP conference in The Netherlands.

Rowland Lorimer, Director of CISP Journals Services and Eugenia Zuroski, Editor Eighteen Century Fiction attended numerous sessions, networked with many other publishers and editors and had discussions with some of vendors of publishing services. They have agreed to provide their trip reports and links to these documents are provided below.

Financial support for their participation was in large part provided by the Canada Periodical Fund, Canadian Heritage, Government of Canada. CALJ would like to acknowledge its great appreciation for this support. Without it, this simply would not have happened.

CALJ also made a contribution to this initiative. Our president, Suzanne Kettley acknowledged that: “A global understanding of the trends, issues, technologies and marketing techniques is critical in the success of Canadian Learned journals. The ALPSP conference is a great opportunity for the participants”.
