In 2019, Insights will be exploring the future of scholarly communication. We are interested in how new infrastructure and technology will change the scholarly communication landscape and better enable direct connections between research funders, institutions and researchers.
The UKSG Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Telford International Centre and is a major event in the scholarly communications calendar which attracts over 900 delegates each year from around the world - librarians, publishers, content providers, consultants and intermediaries. The conference combines high-quality plenary presentations, lightning talks and breakout sessions with entertaining social events and a major trade exhibition.
A recent survey undertaken by the Think.Check.Submit. team reveal the need for additional work to help researchers select journals to publish in and will help guide development of the initiative in 2019. UKSG is pleased to support this work. See the INASP blog post here: http://bit.ly/2EwEiiU
