Join us for a roundtable discussion with a group of University Presses to take a closer look at the ways in which missions shape publishing and product strategies and how the missions are being applied in new ways in response to changes in the digital and higher education spaces. This will be an open session with representatives from a variety of university presses. Topics to be covered include: sustainability of Open Access, use of Data and Analytics, OER’s/Publishing Services and the evolving role of print scholarly communication. Presentations will be followed by a moderated QA. Attendees can expect to learn how mission-driven university presses are making plans now to remain valuable to the publishing ecosystem far into the future.
