On Tuesday last week I went to the 3rd Annual and STM Publishing Conference, organised by Rave Technologies and held at the RSC. There were around 60 delegates from a range of STM, academic and society publishers, both large and small, and I spoke to both clients and candidates during the course of the day.
Most of the presentations were about the future of STM publishing and the need to embrace digital technologies. There was also a focus on the challenges STM publishers are facing and innovative ways we can deal them. There were two panel discussions and lots of opportunities for questions and discussions.
It was a very interesting and useful conference and I would definitely recommend attending next year.
