Roger C. Schonfeld is the guest speaker at the Professional and Scholarly Publishing (PSP) Books Committee Meeting.

Since 2000, the Ithaka S+R Faculty Survey has triennially surveyed US faculty members in their roles as researchers, authors, and teachers. In addition to its ability to track change among faculty members for such a long period of time, the survey also allows for analysis at the disciplinary level in many arts and sciences fields, as well as selected professions. Drawing from this dataset, and focusing especially on the most recent findings from fall 2012, this webinar will focus on three key areas of interest to libraries and content providers alike:

  • The future of the scholarly monograph as we explore whether it will transition from print to electronic format over time;
  • The discovery of scholarly information; and
  • The audiences that faculty members wish to reach and the mechanisms they value to help them to do so.

Some selected comparisons will be presented from a parallel survey of UK academics, which was fielded in partnership with Jisc and RLUK in 2012.

The guest speaker talks are free of charge but you will need to sign up as space is limited.  You can sign up to hear the talk in-person or via webinar.  If you or a colleague wishes to attend, please contact Sara Pinto at spinto@publishers.org.
