The Next Wave of Open Access is coming on fast. Scholarly publishing must move beyond a single-issue focus on Article Processing Charges to address end-to-end solutions that engage authors throughout the workflow.
At a Frankfurt Book Fair panel discussion organized earlier today by Copyright Clearance Center, authors, publishers, funders, and institutional representatives and publishers gathered for a hard look at the important — and often unexpected — challenges of riding the OA wave.
A particular focus examined how the shift toward authors is giving rise to new concerns for publishers who must provide value-added services that attract and retain the highest quality contributors.
Moderated by CCC’s Christopher Kenneally, discussion participants included:
- Josh Dahl, Head of Publishing & Associations, Thomson Reuters (ScholarOne)
- Siân Harris, Communications Coordinator, INASP
- Agnes Henri, Editorial Director, EDP Sciences (Édition Diffusion Presse Sciences)
- Haralambos Marmanis, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Engineering, Copyright Clearance Center
- Randy Petway, Executive Vice President, Publishing Technology
- Helen Sun, CEO, Beijing Ingenta Digital Publishing Technology Limited
- Richard Wynne, Vice President, Aries Systems
- Jian Lin, Deputy Vice President, China National Publications
