2021 Ask the Experts | Trust in Science


In recent years, many groups— from climate-change deniers to anti-vaxxers— have publicly challenged research widely accepted in the scientific community. And although science has always had its critics, trust has reached new lows in an era of misinformation fueled by social media and politicians who doubt the advice of experts. The phenomenon has real-world consequences: in just one current—and pressing—example, doubts surrounding medical research on the Covid-19 virus and the safety of the new vaccines threaten public health efforts to fight the pandemic. How can scientists promote greater public trust in their research? And how can publishers of this research support these efforts? In this Ask the Experts event, attendees will hear from panelists on the latest in efforts to restore trust in science. || Moderator: Anita de Waard | Speakers: Tracey Brown, Richard Sever, Eefke Smit

Librarians answer your questions about collections development. How do librarians decide what materials—books, journals, databases, or other resources—to include in their collections? How do they work within their larger institutions, both in terms of meeting institutional goals and serving users? And how has the covid-19 pandemic changed or influenced their priorities and practices? Viewers will gain a more thorough understanding of the critical role of collections development librarians in the broader scholarly publishing ecosystem.
