Frontline GMS and John Cox Associates Announce ALPSP Publishing Practice Survey

May 29, 2009

Frontline GMS and John Cox Associates announced the opening of the first ALPSP Book and eBook Publishing Practice Survey. The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishing (ALPSP) has previously conducted three surveys of scholarly journal publishing practice, in 2003, 2005 and 2008, which were published as industry reports under the title Scholarly Publishing Practice. These surveys provided information on the ways in which journal publishers have responded to the challenges of online publishing and to the expectations of authors, readers, and libraries at a time when publishers are under scrutiny. Frontline and John Cox Associates have been commissioned to produce a similar survey of book and eBook publishers to ascertain the policies and practices of publishers in this emerging and complex market.
