Publishers cannot take their role for granted. New platforms are emerging that may replace old workflows, lifting them away from publishers large and small. As well as funders, technology companies and governments starting to control parts of the scholarly communication network, large commercial players are also now operating parts of the pipeline. Is this well-overdue innovation to support the needs of researchers or should we worry about how this emerging infrastructure will endure the passing of time and not become a moment of enthusiasm by a few well-funded organisations?

We explore the need for new talent and skills in this rapidly expanding ecosphere, and examine how we might encourage and nurture change that helps build on the fundamental stewardship and integrity of the scholarly record…

There are many open questions and nobody really can predict how the world of scholarly communication and scientific publishing will look like in the years to come. So there is a lot to talk about and we need to share experiences.
