It looks as if primary papers - including peer-reviewed versions - may in
future be made available free of charge in many subject areas. What does
this mean for publishers and learned societies? Will they go out of
business, or will they focus on adding value to the primary articles,
through related information and services?

The International Learned Journals Seminar in London on 30 March will
discuss 'survival strategies for publishers'. The keynote speaker will be
Peter Singer from the University of Toronto, and the day will include
speakers from NFAIS, BioMed Central and ChemWeb as well as the IEE and
Oxford University Press.

The seminar is timed to suit visitors who are also planning to attend the
UKSG conference the following week. Full programme and booking form are
available at - book now, as places are
filling up fast!
