The EU Digital Single Market Copyright Directive: Licensing in the Digital Age

Wednesday 16 October

Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N101)
11:30 to 12:00 

In March, the European Parliament approved the “Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market” with the stated intention of promoting, “a well-functioning marketplace for the exploitation of works.” As EU member states begin to support the Directive through passage of national legislation, a panel of specialists in law and publishing will offer views on the opportunities, challenges and unintended consequences that the Copyright Directive presents.

Panelists:

  • Elizabeth Crossick, Head of Government Relations-EU, RELX Group
  • Roy Kaufman, Managing Director, Business Development & Government Relations, CCC
  • Carlo Scollo Lavizzari, Lenz Caemmerer
  • Mark Seeley, Public Policy Consultant, SciPubLaw


The following is a two-part session on Transformative Agreements

Part 1: Projekt DEAL and the Anatomy of a Transformative Agreement for Open Access Publishing

Wednesday 16 October

Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N101)
14:00 to 14:30 

In January, John Wiley & Sons announced a three-year partnership with Projekt DEAL, a representative of nearly 700 academic institutions in Germany. The “transformative agreement” provides Projekt DEAL institutions with access to read Wiley’s academic journals back to the year 1997, as well as for their researchers to publish articles open access in Wiley’s journals, all for a single annual fee. Two key participants in the negotiations – Wiley’s Deirdre Silver and Max Planck’s Ralf Schimmer – join CCC’s Roy Kaufman to explore how the deal will operate and how it may serve as a model for “advancing open science, driving discovery, and developing and disseminating knowledge.” Moderated by CCC’s Christopher Kenneally.

Panelists:

  • Roy Kaufman, Managing Director, Business Development & Government Relations, CCC
  • Dr Ralf Schimmer, Director Scientific Information Provision, Max Planck Digital Library
  • Deirdre Silver, Associate General Counsel (Global), VP of Legal, Research, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


Part 2: The Future of Transformative Agreements: Subscriptions, Rights & Open Access

Wednesday 16 October

Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N101)
14:30 to 15:00 

Judging by their growing number, “transformative agreements” will play a prominent role in the Open Access dimension of scholarly publishing over the years ahead. Many types of transformative agreements exist, though all move journals from subscription-based to contractually-based business models. Such a change raises important questions for all stakeholders involved. How can systems and tools support the needs of researchers, institutions and funders? What data is needed to track the efficacy of Transformative Agreements? In the absence of tools and frameworks, how can publishers guide the institutional sales team to negotiate the right deal? A panel of licensing, publishing and technology experts will offer their insights. Moderated by CCC’s Christopher Kenneally.

Panelists:

  • Tasha Mellins-Cohen, Director of Publshing, Microbiology Society
  • Mark Seeley, Public Policy Consultant, SciPubLaw
  • Susie Winter, Director of Communications and Engagement, Research, Springer Nature
  • James Milne, Senior Vice President, Journal Publishing Group, American Chemical Society


Better Data is Better Publishing (and Better Science, Too)

Thursday 17 October

Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N101)
14:30 to 15:00 

Your “gut” has met its match. Data-driven solutions for publishing can lead to improvement in many areas from manuscript workflow to peer review, audience development to market reach. Yet publishing has a data problem – a deficit of accurate, relevant data necessary to manage in a world of change. Data is no guarantee for success, but as several use cases demonstrate, better data leads to better publishing (and possibly, better science, too).

PRESENTER:

Chuck Hemenway, Director, Business Development, CCC
