One of the most important decisions any academic publisher has to make is that of the publishing platform the company is going to use to market its content. There are a number of key requirements any content management system will need to be able to deliver, reliably and on budget. Rowland Conway, Director for Content Products at Ingenta, will discuss the relevant merits of platform types and the kinds of questions a publisher needs to ask to make an informed choice.

SciencePod provides a writing, editing, publishing and distribution service to science publishers to help them widely raise the profile of the research they publish, deploying an extensive network of science writers from across Europe to translate complex scientific and technical concepts into simple language. In a new era of scientific publishing, where open access and notions such as citizen science have gained real political weight, SciencePod can make a real difference to discovery and usage.

On the surface, Open Access should be straightforward. Everything is free and can be used, reused and shared – or can it? And if this is the case, how can it be sustainable as a business model? Our guest presenter is Eelco Ferwerda, director of OAPEN. He has been active in the area of open access for monographs since 2008, when he started managing OAPEN as EU co-funded project with 6 European university presses. He is one of Europe’s leading experts on the OA ecosystem. An unmissable session for anyone interested in OA publishing, or flipping to an OA model.
