Description
Scholarly publishing and the communities it serves are in flux. New technologies, globalization, and the commodification of education, among other developments, all pose challenges to those who work in scholarly communications. Of course, change offers opportunities as well as challenges, and failure to embrace change can have dire consequences— sustainable organizations must explore, grow, and innovate if they don’t want to be left behind. At the same time, however, we must not lose sight of the history of scientific and academic discourse, and the core values on which our respective enterprises have been built. Success depends on our ability to balance these seemingly conflicting goals. This year we will meet in Boston to discuss the ways in which we as publishers, librarians, vendors and academics manage to explore and develop new technologies, business models, and partnerships while also remaining focused on our mission to publish and distribute quality scholarly content to researchers and students.

Business success — you may think it’s all about the bottom line, but savvy CEOs like those at Apple, Starbucks and IKEA know otherwise. Although profits play a big role, it’s also important for companies to be socially responsible by considering their impact on the environment, their local economy and their customers. One way that companies can practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) is by incorporating it into company events.
