An Online Discussion Forum for the Scholarly Publishing Community
For 2022, KGL and PubFactory opened our virtual platform community group series to the wider scholarly publishing field on Industry Day from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, October 6. We were excited to feature a stellar list of KGL and external publishing experts to deliver the business intelligence you need to know during these challenging times.
The result was a half-day online seminar of insights, discussion, and practical takeaways on Open Access developments and strategies, smarter citations, alt text, the researcher experience, networked metadata, usage analytics, and more. The recordings from #PubFactory2022 Industry Day appear below.
