Dear colleagues,


*With apologies for cross-posting*


Insights: the UKSG journal is a peer-reviewed, open access journal with an international readership across the LIS and publishing communities. All APCs are paid by UKSG.


In 2019, Insights will be exploring the future of scholarly communication. We are interested in how new infrastructure and technology will change the scholarly communication landscape and better enable direct connections between research funders, institutions and researchers.


We are also considering what a post-Big Deal environment might look like and what this means in terms of the skills information professionals – in libraries, publishing houses and in the organisations providing services to them – will need to develop as the landscape changes. In addition, we are interested in inclusivity and the impact of initiatives to improve inclusion within the sector.


We welcome submissions in the form of opinion pieces, research papers and case studies on these subjects:


You can find our Author Guidelines here and you can submit your papers by clicking on the submission link on the Insights home page.

We look forward to your submissions.


With regards



On behalf of Lorraine Estelle and Steve Sharp, Insights editors
