Publishing for Purpose

Moderated by Andrea Powell, STM Director of Outreach and Publisher Coordinator, Research4Life

The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined the societal benefit of a robust and trusted research publishing system, and the important role that publishers play in connecting research outputs to real-world outcomes.  This session, "Publishing for Purpose“, explores ways that learned societies and other non-profit publishers are embedding publishing into their mission and/or innovation to provide more direct value to their members, their parent societies, and the wider global community.

This session will feature four presentations covering initiatives such as the SDG Publisher Compact and illustrating how some non-profit publishers are developing strategies and programmes to enhance their contribution to their organization’s mission.
