Open science, fake science and peer review quality were part of the agenda
PHILADELPHIA, March 29, 2017 — If you are a publisher, one of the things that might keep you up at night is reassuring your authors that their content will be found when someone searches for it. As a leader across the entire information services landscape and a company that collects, curates and indexes researcher content, Clarivate Analytics heard this message and others by bringing together over 50 of its publishing partners – some who are also clients and some who are even competitors – at its Publisher Forum, held here yesterday.
Keeping up with industry changes, trends and the competition were additional topics that attendees shared when they registered for the event, “What is the biggest challenge to your publishing program in 2017”? And, “What new trends in publishing should be on our radar”?
The forum covered how Clarivate Analytics is helping publishers navigate the changing landscape including development and investment plans for the Web of Science suite of products, content selection initiatives and a discussion about the data and analytics needed for making strategic publishing decisions. The group also heard from the new Clarivate leadership team.
This forum brings together both publishing colleagues and competitors. “Getting us together in the same room allows us to talk about real issues,” said Vincent Cassidy, Director of Academic Markets for The Institute of Engineering and Technology. “For example, how should scholarly publishers better track and analyze open science? Open access is such a lively debate, whenever the topic was raised, you could see everyone sit up and pay attention.”
Cassidy continued, “Knowing that Clarivate has the ability to use its data and analytics to paint a picture for us about our industry means we can count on them for insights that no one else has.”
Jessica Turner, global head of scientific and academic research at Clarivate Analytics said, “We’re pleased and excited to have so many of our publishing partners join us for this event. Hearing from them and planning for future collaboration with this community is critical to our success. We welcome this opportunity to facilitate research excellence.”
