ALPSP course – Journal Development 1: Practical plans for improving journal success

Tuesday, 27 – Wednesday, 28 February 2024

This course will be delivered over two sessions on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 February at:

09:00-12:00 (EST), 14:00-17:00 (GMT) 15:00-18:00 (CET) with 15 minutes of networking before the start of session two.

This workshop focuses on how to build a strategic development plan and presents practical insights, informed by a series of case studies and scenarios. It will focus on the business of developing journals to improve performance and meet strategic goals.

The course is highly interactive, and participants undertake realistic exercises to familiarize themselves with methods of evaluating the competitive position of their journal or portfolio, identifying areas where journal development is required, and building and implementing plans for change. Although some familiarity with the scholarly publishing environment is required, part of the course will also involve discussion of the role of journals in today’s research environment and will consider what threats and opportunities exist for current publishing models.
