The program offers forward looking updates on social sharing and collaboration networks, from ResearchGate to Mendeley, from SciHub to 101 other innovations, including new data on how researchers use these. Also everything you need to know about Crime and Criminality on Internet; How they can steal 60 million in 60 seconds. And more importantly: how to protect yourself against such cybercrime. In-depth sessions will provide insight in how to better organize access to content of scholarly communication along the new standards of the 21st century. Plus a proper introduction to Blockchain; is it as promising as experts say?


Publishing in a larger world, or is it a smaller one? – Thursday 8 December

As the world becomes smaller through the power of the internet, our own worlds must become larger to meet it. We must acknowledge and explore the challenges that both globalisation and new paradigms in scholarly communication present, as we search for ways to make new models sustainable in various markets. In this seminar a range of topics will be explored, including:

  • The effect of Brexit on industry, the academy and scholarly publishing
  • Global variations in attitudes to open access and open science
  • Responsible and sustainable  engagement with emerging markets
  • The new research metrics environment
  • The changing role of institutions and funders
  • The role of the scholarly communication infrastructure
