Society for Scholarly Publishing Top Management Roundtable

Dan Tonkery (Ebsco) and Helen Henderson (Ringgold), both UKSG committee members have written a useful summary of this meeting organised by the Society for Scholarly Publishers earlier this month.

Here is a snippet:

The speakers all provided an insight into the daily lives of companies
fighting to remain competitive and trying to change to survive. There were
valuable lessons for scholarly publishers on how print publishers have had
to change everything and on how hard it is to be able to attract the next
generation of professionals who have so many choices for their information
source. Staying competitive is a constant problem. There is always a chance
your organisation will be made obsolete with the next technology

It also included some success stories - like MyMathLab from Addison Wesley.

Full text of the review is available on the Serials E-News site. See also details on Jill O'Neil's SSP Top Management Roundtable minute by minute blog
