The Academic Publishing in Europe Conference is hosted annually by the Berlin Institute for Scholarly Publishing (BISP). This year’s conference was themed around “Out with the old, in with the new!”, with sessions centered on opportunities to advance scholarly communications in the 21st century.
Hum co-founder and President, Dustin Smith, kicked off the day by sharing actionable ways that Hum is helping publishers access and act on first-party data to drive OA revenue, recruit authors, and deliver audience-first experiences.
The New Dotcoms to Watch session, sponsored by the STM Association, also included presentations from scientifyRESEARCH, Prophy, SciScore, Imagetwin, & Audemic.
“Data is fundamental to the future of publishing,” said Tim Barton, Hum’s CEO. “This event issued a clear call to action for publishers to raise the bar on digital communications. It was exceptional to be able to share how Hum is helping publishers do exactly that, and to hear from other publishing partners who are rising to the challenge.”
