A seminar for officers and staff of learned and professional societies organised by Sue Thorn Consulting in association with ALPSP.

 

Open Access: scenario planning for Societies

Chair: Audrey McCulloch, CEO, ALPSP

Developments such as the Finch report and new RCUK open access policy in the UK, and also OA moves in Europe and the USA, make it highly likely that the journals publishing model will change significantly over the next 5-10 years. But to what extent and in what timescale? And how does a society work out what the implications may be for its journal income and therefore for the future of its wider activities?

Who should attend?
This seminar is for officers and staff of learned and professional societies in all subject areas, for whom journals revenue is significant. It will give practical advice on potential future scenarios for journals publishing and their implications for journal income, using case studies based on real journals. It will then cover the potential implications of changing journal revenues on wider society activities.

At the end of the seminar, delegates should be in a position to use the information gained to assist with carrying out scenario planning for a range of possible futures that may apply to their own society. The day will include panel discussions, which will give delegates the opportunity to bring specific issues forward for discussion and to share experience.

If you’re unable to attend this seminar but would like to be kept informed about future similar events, please send an email to info@alpsp.org

This seminar open to learned and professional societies only and will be conducted under Chatham House Rules.  Key points will be summarised and shared with delegates and full members of ALPSP.
