Will it be advances in artificial intelligence products that change how knowledge creators and curators do what they do? Will it be changes in research funding approaches that affect what research is done and how it is shared? Will it be uncertainty about revenue requiring publishers to change their business models? Or will it be something else? Join us for a peek at the future and ideas on how you can get ready.

Director, University of Cincinnati Press & CLIPS
