Tuesday 10 March 13.00 - 14.00
Too big to fix? Working to help solve industry-wide rights issues
Rights are an integral part of publishing but what happens when there are industry-wide problems that seem too big to fix? From addressing poor rights management to slashing six-month turnaround times for permissions requests, learn how Publishers’ Licensing Services are leveraging their position as a collective management organisation to start solving issues that plague publishing houses across the industry. 
Chair: Amy Ellis, PLS Rights & Licensing Manager
Speaker: Amy Joyner, Head of Rights & Licensing, Kogan Page

Wednesday 11 March 10:00 to 11.00
The Metadata Power Hour This will now run as a free webinar on 21 April (details)
Feel like you hear too much about metadata? Not enough? Find it confusing? Of vital importance? Yes to all of the above! In very practical ways, metadata has different implications for different roles in scholarly communications and like so many topics close to us, it can be hard to sift through the available information to find out what it means to you. Regardless of experience, understanding or enthusiasm (or lack thereof), metadata is important to us all and this session aims to show you how.
Join our panel of experts to understand the challenges and opportunities for everyone involved in or affected by scholarly metadata (so, pretty much everyone)-authors, editors, librarians, service providers and more. With real-life use cases, a little humour and audience input, together we will cover topics like:
What are PIDs and will we ever see an end to new ones? How on earth do I know what’s in my metadata? Or yours? Who’s using all of this metadata anyway and for what exactly? Why should I care about it?
Start your Wednesday off right with a session that might change your mind about metadata, for the better.
Chair: Jennifer Kemp, Head of Business Development, Crossref
Speakers: Fran Frenzel, Metadata & Discovery Manager, University of London, Senate House Library,
Sean Harrop, Content Architect, BMJ,
Dr Ian Synge, Principal Consultant, CCC and
Paige MacKay, Publishing Editor, Ubiquity Press
