The Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) is offering a unique online webinar educational opportunity titled, “Trust, Truth and Scholarly Publishing: Publishing without perishing.” It is scheduled for April 26, 2018 at 10-11am EDT.

Scholarly publishing can sometimes be challenging, but almost always has high publication rate and novel, newsworthy output. How can scholarly publishers reconcile their desire to serve the research community with their commercial need to benefit from it? This webinar will explore the role publishers play in communicating research, what the limiting factors are, and how best these might be overcome to improve dissemination of knowledge.

This is the first in the series of the Trust, Truth and Scholarly Publishing webinars. Others in the series are The reproducibility opportunity on May 22 and Public engagement with scholarly research on June 27. Member discounts are available for booking all three.

This first webinar will be facilitated by Liz Allen, Director of Strategic Initiatives at F1000, Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief, The Lancet, and Jason Hoyt, Co-Founder and CEO of the Open Access publisher, PeerJ.
