Take Survey

For independent scholarly society and university journal publishers, the digital landscape presents new opportunities to expand the reach and influence of research and new challenges — often at the intersection of article production and access models. Publishers are weighing evolving content formatting and metadata standards as well as open access (OA) mandates, which increasingly go hand in hand and can directly affect journal discoverability and impact.

What areas of journal production and access are society and university publishers prioritizing now? And what are their plans for the future? This survey explores these questions spanning:

  • Article production processes and formats
  • Metadata tagging standards and priorities
  • OA journal development approaches and funding models

If you work with a scholarly society, university press, library, or research institution that publishes one or more journals independently, please take the survey to help develop collective insights. The results of this survey will be compiled into an openly available report.
