Could New Chinese Policy Reshape the Global Scholarly Publishing Landscape?

October 14, 2020 | 16:00 BST

Join us on Wednesday 14th October at 16:00 UK (15:00 UTC) for a conversation about how new Chinese publishing policies could shape the future of global scholarly publishing.
China is now the world’s largest producer of scientific publications. In the future, will all Chinese research papers be published by Chinese publishers and on Chinese owned platforms? Will ‘Western’ publishers be potentially starved of Chinese research content? If this is the case, what could the long-term impact be?

We will be joined by guest speaker Tao Tao. Tao Tao has dedicated her entire career to scholarly publishing and communication. She started as an Associate Editor of Chinese Medical Journal, the oldest Chinese academic journal published in English. Later she joined the Charlesworth Group, a UK publishing services company, and helped establish their first overseas office in Beijing from scratch and held the position of General Manager for 15 years before moving to the US office and taking the position of Vice President China Sales. In 2018 Tao became an Independent Consultant focusing on China market research and development. In this new role she helps both western organizations to explore and further penetrate into China market, and Chinese publishers to grow their impact internationally. She is also an active member and volunteer in the Society for Scholarly Publishing, as a member of the Community Engagement Committee and a Scholarly Kitchen chef.

We welcome you to come along and join the discussion. Please do note this not a webinar, the session will not be recorded, and we do expect all attendees to join in the discussion.
