Reclaiming society publishing.

Steinberg, P.E. (2015) 'Reclaiming society publishing.', Publications., 3 (3). pp. 150-154.

Abstract

Learned societies have become aligned with commercial publishers, who have increasingly taken over the latter’s function as independent providers of scholarly information. Using the example of geographical societies, the advantages and disadvantages of this trend are examined. It is argued that in an era of digital publication, learned societies can offer leadership with a new model of open access that can guarantee high quality scholarly material whose publication costs are supported by society membership dues.
