Academic Book Week event - Creating the Future of Academic Publishing: Strengthening the Research Ecosystem

Emerald would like to invite you to re-energise the debate around Impact, Innovation and Interdisciplinarity within academic publishing on Monday 23rd January 2017, as part of Academic Book Week. Creating the Future of Academic Publishing: Strengthening the Research Ecosystem will essentially be an 'unconference' where we want to encourage discussion and debate around the relationship between academics and publishers and facilitate dialogue between all areas of the research ecosystem. The evening event will kick off with opening talks by John Holmwood (Professor of Sociology at University of Nottingham), Martin Paul Eve (Chair of Literature, Technology and Publishing at Birkbeck, University of London) and one other speaker (to be announced very soon!)  all exploring ways to strengthen the research ecosystem. Teams of academics will then choose topics of their choice (Impact, Innovation, Interdisciplinarity) to debate in smaller groups. Drinks and nibbles will be provided by us but the debates will be led by you - so come prepared with questions!
