The Past, the Present and the Future of STM Publishing (PDF)

"The past "sucks", The present is "quite alright", and the future "will be even brighter"

Past - The Internet was the revolution
- Fear and excitement
- It was successful (continuing growth, always profitable)
- There will be no more revolutions
- Let's get back to work

Let the technological innovation do the technology industry, innovate your (publishing) business model 

Open access is not the devil's work
- Gold open access is good
- Green open access is not sustainable
- Open Access is more appropriate for some disciplines
- Open Access is not the solution to the funding crisis

Two-sided funding challenge
- Volume of published research far outpaces growth of library budgets
- Price increases have been below volume growth and inflation for the past years
- Emerging markets are not paying their fair share- this must change

There is good news
- STM publishing has been a growth industry for the past 25 years
- Usage is growing exponentially, unit costs are declining
- Many opportunities to market our content to non-traditional customers

Take aways
- Publishers should focus on content, not bells and whistles
- We must kearn to live with only marginally increased library budgets
- Rapidly developing countries must pay their fair share
- Be open to new business models, don't put all of all your hope in technology
- (invest in publishing)

Last session today:
Enabling the Transition of Existing Journals to Open Access (Bernard F. Schutz)

The ideal world of Open Access
If the dominant business model were OA, stresses would be relieved
- income and cost would be coupled again: article charges follow expenses
- archives do not pose any threat to journals

Scholarly research and society at large will benefit
- full text search, fewer barriers to interdisciplinarity
- wider access to SMEs, professionals, educators

Role of publisher will continue to change
- peer review as key service
- new bussiness opportunities in search & discovery, ...

Total cost of publishing research is only 1 - 3 % of total cost of research performance. We need to control this cost, not just accepting just any charges ... co-payment with some incentive to keep the cost low and keep competition alive.

more to come tomorrow (2nd Day)
