New York: From September 9–12, Enago, one of the scientific community’s preeminent providers of English editing and publication support, attended the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers’ (ALPSP) annual conference. This key event for the community attracts a high-level audience from all sectors of the industry to discuss and debate the latest developments in scholarly publishing. Rajiv Shirke, vice president of global operations forEnago’s parent company, Crimson Interactive, representedEnago at the event.
Formed more than 40 years ago, ALPSP is the largest international association for nonprofit scholarly and professional publishers. Its 400+ members across 40 countries produce more than 10,000 journals, as well as numerous books, reports, databases, and other products and services. Its annual conference, held this year at the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow, is an ideal forum in which this unique network learns about new initiatives in the industry and discusses the challenges it faces.
Keynote speakers included Anurag Acharya, co-creator of Google Scholar, who spoke on “What happens when your library is worldwide and all articles are easy to find?” and Kuansan Wang, director of the Internet Service Research Center at Microsoft Research, who addressed “From Web Publishing to Knowledge Web Publishing.”
“The organizers delivered on their promise to provide thought-provoking, practical, and interactive sessions on a wide range of topics,” said Shirke. “The excellent lineup of speakers included Peter Richardson, managing director of the British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery, on ‘Partnering with Others to Expand Your Global Reach.’ Small publishers can’t do everything themselves—and neither can large publishers in many cases. Richardson’s session outlined some answers to the key question of how publishers can make the most of partnerships with companies likeEnago that help expand their reach to a worldwide audience.”
