67 Bricks’ Sam Herbert is looking forward to attending STM’s popular pre-Frankfurt conference next Tuesday where he will be discussing how organisations can advance in scholarly publishing via innovation and technology.

Our co-founder will take part in a panel alongside publishing colleagues from Springer Nature, Wolters Kluwer Health and Code Ocean in a discussion led by Daniel Ebneter, CEO at Karger Publishers.

Sam said: “Authors and researchers are demanding publishers give them better user experiences and a new range of personalised, digital products to support the full research lifecycle. Its all change for the industry, but its a hard transition period for publishers who have little appetite for risk and are used to traditional, embedded ways of working. How do you gain traction? Change is coming whether we are comfortable with it or not, so now is a great time to discuss how to remain relevant by delivering the experiences authors and researchers increasingly expect.”

The panel is at 10.50am on Tuesday at the Grand Westin Hotel, Frankfurt. More information, including the full programme, can be found at STM. We look forward to seeing colleagues and associates there.
