The Future of the Journal
Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, has edited a new book on the future of the academic journal (with Bill Cope). With contributions from a number of expert contributors, the volume looks at a range of key topics that are of vital importance to academics and publishers alike, as well as librarians, members of learned and professional societies, and policy-makers. Will the journals business continue to grow? Open access initiatives still form a relatively small part of journals publishing, but will they become the norm? How do librarians, publishers and academics see the future for journals? Will other forms of access to knowledge, and different methods of scholarly communication, become more important? How will the academic journal be affected by public policy, changes in copyright law, and the views of learned societies and research bodies?
