Open Access and the Changing World of Scholarly Research
S. Karger AG, Switzerland
Radical changes are afoot in scholarly publishing, and the needs of libraries
Institutes and publishers have always shared a core mission: to help knowledge reach the people who need it. But Open Access is re-defining the roles of libraries/institutions and publishers. We are no longer only talking about selling and acquiring content. Now, our focus is shifting to filtering, generating and publishing content – content that matters. This means that the entire research cycle is coming into the picture. How can we as a publisher ensure we are covering and serving the evolving needs of institutions and libraries, or, as Karger puts it, “connecting and advancing health sciences?” Karger is embracing the revolution. By diversifying our services, Karger aims to intensify our cooperation with libraries and institutions as their roles are transformed, too.
