Research & Scholarly - The London Book Fair

Research & Scholarly

  • The Research & Scholarly Publishing Forum

    Is this the end of publishing as we know it?

    The Research and Scholarly Publishing Forum tackles the major issues shaping the future of academic publishing, including the impact of Open Access and the future of peer review processes. 

  • The Programme

    In 2018, RSPF debated the big questions facing Academic publishing, including: How much of OA content is used by the general public whose taxes supported some of the research? How many researchers regularly read papers in disciplines other than their own? What is the real impact of academic research papers and monographs being freely available?
