Last week the University of Huddersfield Press (represented by Megan Taylor and Kathrine Jensen) went along to the Northern Collaboration Conference 2017 at York University. The theme for the conference was Digital Transformation, and it was a great way to get us thinking about how our publishing practices are informed by digital technology, and particularity to look at how new platforms, technologies and opportunities can be used to enable open access publishing.
Our paper focused on four key questions:
• What does Open Access mean?
• How and why is the University of Huddersfield Press involved?
• What part does digital transformation play?
• How does all this impact on the scholarly community?
You can see the presentation slides here, but do feel free to get in touch with Megan Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
The day was a great opportunity to talk to other university press colleagues, and we look forward to getting involved next year too. Watch this space for a published article to come soon from the themes in our presentation.
