“The State of Journal Production and Access 2020: Report on Survey of Society And University Publishers”

From Scholastica:

The 2020 “State of Journal Production and Access” report details the results of a global survey of scholarly society, university press, and university library publishers on how they are approaching journal production and access now and in the future. The survey questions spanned core aspects of production and access, including:

  • Article formatting/layout processes and priorities
  • Metadata tagging standards and priorities
  • Open Access journal development approaches and funding models

In the evolving world of scholarly publishing, journal production and access are two areas undergoing some of the most significant and rapid changes. The goal of this survey report is to provide society and university publishers and stakeholders with generative insights around these discrete but increasingly related aspects of publishing to gauge where the digital journal landscape is moving.
