Becoming a Data Driven Publishing Organization, ALPSP seminar, 20 April, London

    Seminar: How to Build a Data Driven Publishing Organization

    Thursday 20 April, London (full day) #alpspdatadriven

    Chaired by Freddie Quek, Group Head of Software, The Collinson Group and Research Associate, Henley Business School, our speakers will discuss what a data driven publishing organization looks like, why you should be one, and how best to go about this.

    This seminar will provide detailed information and case studies on how to apply data about users, subscribers, authors and institutions to drive decisions. Key insights will cover using data to inform what to publish, product development, user experience, sales and marketing, audience outreach and more. We will cover the types of data driven decisions that can be used by publishers of any size, including applications for small publishers that may not have the resources of a data department, addressing skill sets and expertise required to achieve the best results.  This is also the opportunity to find out and learn from what other companies and vendors are doing outside scholarly publishing.
