LAWRENCE, Kan. – January 20, 2016 – Allen Press, Inc., will present its annual Emerging Trends in Scholarly Publishing™ Seminar titled Sea Change: Challenges and Opportunities in the Publishing Ecosystem on April 21, 2016, at the Embassy Suites DC Convention Center in Washington DC.

etsem16_frontpage-register

At this event, pioneers and explorers in the field of scholarly and electronic publishing will share their experience, expertise, and insight into the depths of industry collaboration, the shifting identity of libraries, the transformational promise of data, new approaches to the journal publication process, the needs of researchers and authors, and shifting tides in the publishing environment.

The stability of libraries is sometimes threatened by change. Keynote speaker Roger Schonfeld, an expert in the evolving roles of the academic library, scholarly publisher, and learned society, will tell us how he sees libraries adapting and developing new strengths as they find their place in the ecosystem going forward.

In a session titled “Symbiosis—Is Collaboration the New Innovation?,” Alice Meadows of ORCID, Kristen Ratan of the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation, and Mike Conlon of Vivo will discuss ways that collaboration between entities that support the scholarly publishing enterprise create efficiency and fuel innovation.

Two new journal models—a Pay What You Want open access journal and one that conducts peer review prior to data collection and analysis—will be presented in the session “Evolving Species—The Journal in Transition” by Graham Brumfield of The Surgery Journal and Sarah Bowman of Registered Reports.

The day will wrap up with a final session titled “Biodiversity—A Healthy Ecosystem Thrives on Fresh Ideas,” presented by Phil Jones of Digital Science, Judy Ruttenberg of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Gary Dunham of Indiana University Press. This session will look at the transformational promise of open, linked, and shared data, international repository alignments, and SHARE collaborations, and conclude with an overview of the current trends in scholarly publishing from the perspective of the university press.

Roundtable discussions, a popular regular feature of the seminar, will create an opportunity for in-depth conversation with colleagues in an informal setting. More information—including additional speaker and roundtable topic announcements—will be available at http://allenpress.com/events/seminar/program in the coming weeks.

Registration includes breakfast and a networking lunch. For more information or to register, please visit http://allenpress.com/events/seminar.
