ALPSP Survey Report Published

Oct 14, 2008

The third in a series of ALPSP surveys undertaken to establish current scholarly publishing practices and designed to track changes in policy and practice since 2000, has been published by the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishing. The survey was conducted of 400 journal publishers, both commercial and not-for-profit, consisting of ALPSP and other association members. Key findings include: large publishers and commercial publishers are launching new journals at a higher rate than in 2005; Licensing terms have become more generous; the growth trajectory of online availability has been steady since 2003, and publishers are at different stages of development in their implementation of Web 2.0 technologies.
