The Society for Scholarly Publishing is offering a virtual event titled, “Seeking Sustainability: Publishing Models for an Open Access Age”. This event is scheduled for April 2, 2020 at 10:00-12:00 pm ET.

In this new and strange time of social distancing due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this event might just be what the doctor ordered.

Library consortia around the world are turning to new, non-traditional models as thinking shifts on how to provide researchers with access to content as well as support for publications. Publishers are grappling with subscriptions losing value and needing to develop new revenue models.

This interactive virtual event seeks to engage questions such as:

  • What models are emerging for the open access publishing age?
  • Are these models adaptable to meet the needs of different types of institutions and publishers?
  • Are they sustainable over the long term?
  • Do they serve the needs of authors as well as funders, governments, institutions, etc.?

Hear from publishers and librarians exploring new models and their sustainability as well as concerns of those organizations, including small and society, who fear they may be left out of the discussion.
