They are:

29 November, 3pm UK time: Academic publishing and a quest for diversity. Find out why a push towards greater diversity, equity and inclusion is essential for all parts of the scholarly communications industry. REGISTER HERE

Speakers: Gita Manaktala, Editorial Director at MIT Press, USA; Nicola Nugent, Publishing Manager, Quality and Ethics, Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, UK; and Ludovik Sebire, Faculty Librarian at University of the West of England Bristol.

2 December, 3pm UK time: Sustainable development goals and scholarly communications. Why (and how) libraries, research bodies and publishers alike should embrace the UN’s sustainable development goals – many of them brought into sharp focus at the recent COP26 summit – to benefit the global community. REGISTER HERE

Speakers: Liz Martin, Head of Production, IOP Publishing; Thea Sherer, Director of Sustainability, Springer Nature; Gaëlle Bequet, Director, ISSN International Centre.

6 December, 3pm UK time: Are hybrid events here to stay? Blended conferences were forced on the industry with the advent of Covid-19; now many commentators are arguing that hybrid events are the future – and should never go back to the way they were. Please join us for this free, one-hour panel discussion! REGISTER HERE

Speakers: Clive Snell, Director, ConTech; Leah Hinds, Executive Director, Charleston Conference; Simon Inger, Co-founder, Cadmore Media; Ben Kaube, Co-founder, Cassyni.
