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.

Over the past decade, peer-reviewed research has experienced a mushrooming crisis in the emergence of predatory journals. The reporting of false data, the manipulation of peer review, and the exploitation of authorship are all forms of gross scientific misconduct that many editors and publishers unfortunately face on a regular basis. Along with the surge of retractions that has touched even the most reputable publications, editors, and gatekeepers, the scientific community has sought meaningful remedies to track, record, blacklist, and carefully monitor the repeat offenders. Along the way, publishers of prominent mega journals have been caught in the crossfire, often viewed as perpetrators encouraging the publication of vast amounts of mediocre research. This lively and meaningful discussion of our expert panelists dissects the situation at hand and presents best practices and approaches to work together to uphold meaningful, influential, and impactful science that drives scientific fields forward.
