Have you got the new and exciting “back to school” feeling? We have! Academic publishing is brimming with change right now, and the 67 Bricks team are looking forward to discussing the latest industry developments and innovations with clients old and new at the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) Annual Conference and Awards next week.

This renowned industry event is always a hub of ground-breaking thinking with plenty of opportunity to network, and our team welcome meetings with peers across the industry during the three-day event.

Its an extra special event for the 67 Bricks team this year; we are nominated with our client BMJ Best Practice for the annual ALPSP Innovation Award – and find out if it is our lucky night on Thursday at 9:30pm.

BMJ Product Manager Elin Svensson Goodwin and our own Jennifer Schivas will kick off the awards proceedings on Wednesday at 4.55pm with a presentation to the audience about how we worked together to reinvent their flagship product Best Practice and why it is innovative and breaking new ground in healthcare. You can read all about it here.

On Thursday morning Jennifer will be moderating a panel on Business Models and Innovation at 10.45am. Other industry speakers include Emerald Publishing, Springer Nature, KUDOS, Wiley and many more, covering open research and transparency, business models and innovation and internationalization and diversity. Its a packed event!

Get in touch with Jennifer Schivas or David Leeming to have a coffee and a chat. We look forward to seeing many of you there!
