2016 SSP 38th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 3E: Roundtable Discussions – Meet the…
Publishing is changing, but so is the way end-users, librarians, and students integrate, utilize and create content in their day-to-day work. In this session, you will have a chance to interact directly with researchers, professors, librarians and graduate students to ask any questions you want 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, and predatory publishers? How do they integrate social media in their academic life? What are their views on publishing in general, and what changes would they welcome? How do they manage ever-tighter budgets? Through roundtable conversations with the panelists, the audience will come away with a clearer understanding and a better appreciation of what is on the mind of all these stakeholders as scholarly publishing evolves.
