How do societies ensure that the value and contribution of society publishing is not overshadowed by debates around mandates and business models? Join Erin Wiringi (American Chemical Society) and Karin Wulf (College of William & Mary) as they share their thoughts on communicating how society publishing programs uniquely support and advance research and education in their disciplines. The discussions will be chaired by Seth Denbo (American Historical Association).

In the increasingly complex debate around mandates and business models, how do societies ensure that the value and quality of society publishing is not lost in the noise? Whom must societies convince and how should they do it? In a recent article entitled “The death of the learned societies?” one ScienceGuide commentator noted – “Learned societies will have to come up with a convincing rationale behind their business model.”

ALPSP invites you to join scholarly communication colleagues for an afternoon and evening of thought-provoking presentations and conversation.  Erin Wiringi (American Chemical Society) and Karin Wulf (College of William & Mary) will share their thoughts on effectively communicating how society publishing programs uniquely support and advance research and education in their disciplines. The discussions will be chaired by Seth Denbo (American Historical Association) and the Chatham House Rule will apply.
