It seems fitting as they are celebrating theirs 40th anniversary that the theme for the conference – Scholarly Publishing at the Crossroads: What’s working, what’s holding us back, where do we go from here? – highlights the many crossroads within scholarly publishing, including past and future practices, changing revenue models, funding challenges, regulation changes, technological innovations, and reaching new markets while maintaining established ones.
