Meeting the Publishers Seminar
Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The seminar "Meeting the Publishers" will take place on January 20th, 2010, from 14h-16h in room D2.01 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

The invited panel consist of:
Mila Steele - Commissioning Editor for media & cultural studies - SAGE
Masoud Yazdani -  Chairman INTELLECT
Erik van Aert - Publisher Social Sciences - AMSTERDAM UNIVERSITY PRESS
Moderator: Jean Paul Van Bendegem - Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium - Managing Editor "Logique et Analyse"

The first part is aimed at describing the broader context and the current state of affairs within academic publishing: a quick view of activities within a major publishing company, recent evolutions within scientific publication such as the open access movement, how the publishing houses respond to those challenges in their book/journal/IP policies, the business models used to cope with increasing risk situation and the consequences of that for academic publishing, quality assessment issues such as the importance (or not) of being indexed, ranked, impact factors, the coverage of new forms of research such as applied arts research.

The second part is orientated to inform young scholars with respect to the do’s and don't in their dealings with publishing houses. What opportunities are there for young researchers to have their research published in books? How should they proceed and communicate?
Each participant will make a 10-minute intervention for each of the two parts. After that, we'll move into the Q&A part.
