The theme of this year’s conference is “Strategies for Transitioning Journals to Sustainability”, and will focus on how libraries and other academic institutions are planning and implementing interventions, alternative publishing models, and other responses to the ongoing serials crisis. The past year has been notable because of the boycott of Elsevier by the University of California system, as well as the unbundling of so-called big deal subscription packages at many major flagship universities. A key category of questions this symposium will engage with could be summarized as, “If not Elsevier, then what?” Alternatives to monopoly publishers include transitions to high-quality peer-reviewed open access (OA) journals, OA mandates by funding agencies, and governmental responses to monopolistic control of scholarly communication. Major presenters who have already committed to speak at this year’s symposium include our keynote Heather Joseph (SPARC Executive Director), librarians from California and other states who have either boycotted or unbundled Elsevier subscription packages, faculty editors from around the world who have taken their journals independent of Elsevier, funding agency officials who have instituted OA mandates, and legal experts who will speak to government oversight of scholarly communication. We invite proposals for short presentations regarding any topic related to our theme of strategies for transitioning journals to sustainability. If you would like to submit a proposal, use the CFP submission form at URL http://go.uncg.edu/scs20 Registration is not yet open for the conference, but will be coming soon.
