The Geography of Journal Publishing
Convener: Mark Robertson, President, Asia, Blackwell Publishing
The centre of the journal publishing world has shifted somewhere over the mid Atlantic and rests either on the west coast of Europe in the UK or the east coast of America depending on the perceptions of the publishing and academic community on either side of the Atlantic. Data presented at the STM meeting in Frankfurt on open access journals indicated that a considerable number of new open access journals are originating from the Asian region and various reports have postulated that research output from Asia will soon eclipse that from Europe and the US. Coupled with this is the current interest of the publishing community in selling their online content in Asia. Is the geography of journal publishing therefore shifting?
