DAY #2 – Live news from 2017 London Bookfair

  • “Turn, Click, Swipe: the next Chapter for Academic Publishing

    We are told that the tipping point for print vs digital has been reached – but what does this mean for academic publishing? Consume as you need, consume as you could — or consume as you should? During Academic Book Week, 5 experts from the publishing, academic, librarian and tech worlds debated the future.

    Our last edition Tech Tuesday took place on the 24 January. Turn, Click, Swipe: the next Chapter for Academic Publishing was held in Oxford; the first outside of London, and the first to be part of Academic Book Week.
