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
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
