    Is this the end of publishing as we know it?

    Research and scholarly publishing faces unprecedented change. Digitisation has turned the concept of territoriality and the supply chain upside down. Different international approaches to funding in higher education and research mandates are not only affecting institutions, but also publishers.

    In partnership with the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the 2018 Research and Scholarly Publishing Forum will tackle the big issues facing academic publishing, including the impact of Open Access and the future of peer review processes.
