This panel of Scholarly Kitchen Chefs discusses the future of scholarly communication, particularly for independent and society publishers, in light of the conversations held over the past two days. Which OA and peer review models will emerge as dominant in the coming years? Who among the current crowd of “disruptors” are they watching most closely? And what must stakeholders in scholarly communications do to ensure the sustainability of their organizations over the longer term? The Chefs consider these questions and more in this lively closing panel.

Scholarly Communications in the Era of COVID-19

41:22

Release Date: 07/13/2020, Angela Cochran, Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe

The COVID-19 pandemic has both exacerbated old problems and introduced new ones for the scholarly communications industry. In the first session in our Online Professional Development Series, Angela Cochran and Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe discuss the impact of the global pandemic on publishers and libraries, from the initial disruption and pivot to work from home/shelter in place, to its implications for 2021 and beyond. Questions considered during the conversation include: -How have campus closures and remote work exacerbated ongoing problems with remote user access? -Will the crisis drive book publishing to become “digital first” once and for all? -How will projected budget cuts and declining enrollment at universities affect the broader academic ecosystem, including the push toward open access? Join us as Angela and Lisa, both Scholarly Kitchen chefs and SSP Board members, explore the challenges as well as some of the surprising opportunities presented by the global crisis.
