It’s that time of year again – mark your London Book Fair calendar for April 10, as Altmetric will be making a splash!
Don’t miss “THE BIG DEBATE: Business models – experimenting for the future ” panel at the BIC Supply Chain – Altmetric’s Founder, Euan Adie will be speaking on recent developments in scholarly publishing:
“There is no denying that the last decade has seen some monumental changes within the publishing industry. The surging power of social media and direct to consumer selling, the ‘death’ of the physical book and the rise of the ebook, the on-going debate over open-access, tech start-ups and consolidation have greatly altered the face of our industry. Publishers know they need to stay agile to respond to these changes in order to stay profitable.
This panel debate will consider opportunities such as the repackaging of content, product bundling and subscription access, and focus on the challenges publishers face in revising business strategies in order to experiment, questioning which might be the right ones to adopt for the future and looking at how they are adjusting their business models to stay relevant.”
We’ll also be participating in the Digital Innovation Exhibition, where we were lucky enough to win an exhibition space in the TechCentral Zone (courtesy of by IC Tomorrow, part of the Technology Strategy Board Network).
