KWF special report on scholarly publisher responses to current industry disruptors

If you’re like many of our clients, your publishing program is facing unprecedented challenges related to submission volume, open access and, of course, the dual health and economic crises.

To understand how quality peer-reviewed journals are responding to these challenges and to help identify workable solutions, KWF recently conducted a survey of journal managers and executives at scholarly societies and publishers. With input from 77 professionals – among them representatives of the most recognized and influential journals in the world – our study captured a broad cross-section of the smartest thinking in our industry. KWF is pleased to share highlights from our findings in this special report.

From increasing author satisfaction and attracting more high-quality research to meeting the needs of an increasingly open research community, our report covers some helpful ideas and data to guide your publishing program’s strategy. All of it is based on the real, first-hand experience of professionals working in our industry.
