The Future of Academic Publishers Research Report:

Researchers' Perspective

Whilst some researchers question the need for academic publishers in the future, we will take a deep dive into the researcher perspective across subject disciplines and summarize the roles academic publishers will play in the future of the research landscape.

 

This is the first report in the new research series by The International Bunch: ‘The Future of Academic Publishers’, exploring the perspectives from key stakeholders, including researchers, information professionals and funders.

Gain actionable insights to inform your publishing strategy with this open access industry report with segmented and anonymized data for further internal analysis.
