Concurrent 1B: The Researchers’ New Big Picture
Publishing is changing, but so is the way researchers integrate, utilize and create content in their day-to-day work. In this session, you will hear directly from researchers, professors and graduate students about their routine and expectations when it comes to scholarly content. What is their reality? What kind of pressure do they face to advance their career and to secure funding for their projects? How do they perceive Open Access, mega journals, predatory publishers? How do they integrate social media in their academic life? What are their views on publishing in general and what kind of changes would they welcome? We will have a panel of 3-4 end-users in the STM fields. The session will be interactive with plenty of opportunities for the audience to ask questions and hear all about the new big picture from the researchers’ perspective.
