How Will Brexit Impact Scholarly Publishing? | Copyright Clearance Center

The nature and even timing of Britain’s exit from the European Union remain unclear. Yet one can confidently predict that Brexit will mean dramatic changes for the UK’s scholarly publishing community. For the researchers whose contributions drive content into society journals and high IF journals alike, Brexit will rewrite rules governing partnerships with European colleagues as well as access to resources available for research. For publishers, shifts in long-established editorial and business practices raise questions that will require ample patience for risk and uncertainty over the short and medium-term. What challenges should you prepare for? What opportunities may lie ahead? What will Brexit mean to the transition to Open Access? This 2019 London Book Fair panel explores the many possible directions Brexit may lead publishing in 2019 and after.

CCC’s Christopher Kenneally moderates the panel, featuring:

Tim Britton, Springer Nature Petra Labriga, Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hugh Logue, Outsell Simon Ross, Manchester University Press
