ALPSP monitors national and international issues and represents the interests of members to the wider world. We are involved in representation of the scholarly publishing sector on a wide range of key issues, both national and international. ALPSP keeps a watching brief on all current matters relating to the business of scholarly publishing, and works with members to provide policy-makers and commentators with clear information on the likely impact of new policy initiatives. We carry out research and issue briefing documents and position statements on subjects of key concern.
