Don’t miss the launch of this year’s edition of STM’s well-acclaimed STM Trends 2026. The motto in this new future forecast is: The Beauty of Open at Scale.

In the next 3 to 5 years our industry will see a sharp rise in Open Access content. What does that mean for scholarly discovery amidst the proliferation of information platforms? Within this play for platform prevalence, what new eco-system will develop and how will influencers guide users and authors the way — in an abundance of available and openly accessible information? And, very important, how is the role of publishers supporting this through tools for trust and integrity? People want to be able to trust the content they find, so how can publishers help ensure and vet its quality and integrity even better? These are the questions the new STM Trends 2026 will delve into. 

Come, learn and see the new infographic poster – intended to share widely.
