  2. 2. Academic Publishing is Evolving… Challenges • There are already strong OA Publishers • PLOS, BioMed Central (Springer), Hindawi, Frontiers (NPG) • Librarians are no longer the customer. Author’s are the ‘customer’ • Authors are increasingly well informed (‘activist academics’) • The market now cares about different issues to the past • People are Actively Experimenting • PeerJ, eLife, F1000 Research, Cureus, PLOS ONE

Academic Publishing is Evolving… Some of the Experiments • The Editorial Model • PLOS ONE (peer review for scientific rigour, not impact) • F1000 Research (publish first, peer review later) • Hindawi’s ISRN Series (peer review via ‘voting’ and discussion) • PrePrint Servers (e.g. PeerJ PrePrints, bioRxiv, arXiv, F1000 Research) • ‘Born’ OA Functionality • PeerJ • eLife • F1000 Research • Disaggregation of Services • Rubriq / Peerage of Science • Article Level Metrics / AltMetrics • FigShare
  16. 16. Academic Publishing is Evolving… Five Things to Consider 1. Your market is in the middle of disruption & unpredictable change 2. OA has new customers – serve them in new ways 3. Carefully consider what is an appropriate and sustainable business model for your specific audience 4. Your market is moving fast. Don’t delay, act today! Experiment and iterate! 5. Whatever you do, do it with conviction and do it for the right reasons because the marketplace will scrutinize you
