What is integrated content?
‘Integrated content’ is one of those terms that does the rounds in scholarly and professional publishing, while meaning vastly different things depending on the context. The term has stood variously for the combination of content types on a platform, such as journal articles and ebooks, or for the merging of in-house editorial and production procedures.
For many years I’ve attended both the CSE and SSP Annual Meetings – not both meetings every year, but very often I’ve attended each of them. And anyone who has done this duathlon knows that they are very close together on the calendar. That being said, they are, without question, very worth the time, energy and resources devoted to attendance.
Understanding our customers’ needs in a maturing market, today and into the future
In April 2016, I reported in the HighWire newsletter on the Spring Publishers’ Meeting, Stanford, USA. At that meeting, Dan Filby, CEO HighWire communicated the demonstrable progress of delivering on commitments made during 2015. The focus of my review was to look at the results of this raised level of service and how these impacted upon the scholarly publishing market (a market which all too often pays lip service to the reality of supporting customers).
I attended SSP’s Meet the…(Librarian/Researcher/Student/Dean) Rountable Discussions this past week at SSP 2016 in Vancouver. It was an informative session, and a new approach to a panel, at least to me. What did we hear from the panelists?
Rather than try and summarize – which would just homogenize distinct voices – I’m going to paraphrase the panelists’ views.
