Elizabeth Wallace on Mon, 12/28/2015 - 11:02am 

The Publisher/Vendor Relations Discussion Group of the ACRL Science & Technology Section invites you to join us at ALA Midwinter 2016 in Boston for:

The Rise of the Mega Journal: Is bigger better? 

The mega journal: open access, peer-reviewed, and typically defined by a very large number of papers published compared to other scholarly journals. In recent years a number of commercial publishers, scholarly and professional societies, and university presses have branched out into this relatively new form of scholarly communication. 

Please join us for a timely discussion on the origin of the mega journal, and where it fits within the larger publishing landscape. Participating on our panel: 

Dr. Nandita Quaderi 
Publishing Director, Open Research, Nature Publishing Group 

Dr. Deborah Sweet 
Editor and Publishing Director, Cell Press 

Dr. Jason Wilde 
Chief Publishing Officer, American Institute of Physics 

Moderator: Scott Warren 
Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship at Syracuse University Libraries

Sunday February 1st, 8:30am – 10:00am, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Room 156C
(Add to Midwinter Schedule)

What are these regional science boot camps? Do they include events like navigating an obstacle course in an unfamiliar library, making s'mores over burning piles of deaccessioned indexes, or building a fort out of old volumes of Chemical Abstracts to repel the campers from the other side of the lake? Hear from boot camp planners like Maxine Schmidt of the University Of Massachusetts Amherst, Margaret Mellinger of Oregon State University, and Tim Klassen of the University of Alberta talk about their experiences attending, planning, and running boot camps. The usual lively discussion will follow, exploring what you might get out of a boot camp, what you did at a boot camp, and what you might like to see at future boot camps.

 

See you in Chicago,
