Open Access has changed scholarly publishing like no other new business model in the past few decades. It would not have been possible without massive changes from paper-based to digital publishing and distribution methods, and there are no signs yet that the acceleration of change will be over any time soon.

The panel will not only discuss the impact Open Access has on Publishers, Researchers, Intermediaries and Librarians. It will also take a look into the future and venture into the other fields of publishing. The panelists bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from around the world. The panel will be accompanied by workshops on day 2 of the Publishers’ Forum.

Introduction: 3:45 – 4:00 pm
