Digital academic publishing conference

Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research, Birmingham City University hosted a meeting of representatives from British academic publishers on 6th September 2010.

In addition to Intellect there were representatives from Berg Publishers, Palgrave Macmillan, Humanities-Ebooks LLP, Nottingham University Press, Oxford University Press, Adam Matthew Digital, SAGE Publishing, Cambridge University Press. The meeting was chaired by Professor Tim Wall (Professor of Radio and Popular Music Studies, and Head of Academic Affairs at the Birmingham Centre University).

The publishing industry is currently undergoing major challenges. In many ways these parallel the challenges faced by the music industry a decade ago. This event aimed to identify the issues and set out a way forward. Rob Horrocks presented research undertaken into the perceptions of publishers, to identify models for the future of academic publishing using the experience of the earlier work at Birmingham City University with the music business.

You can hear the contribution made by Intellect's chairman, Masoud Yazdani here.
