After 500 years of print publishing, the advent of digitization has caused a huge evolutionary leap in scholarly publishing. Content once logically packaged in a book or print journal issue has now quickly evolved not just to an online version of print but into an entirely new digitally-born method of scholarly communication. In this session, publishers and librarians will discuss current emerging models for scholarly communication and discuss its future. Damon Zucca from Oxford University Press talks about the transformation of the long-standing print Oxford Handbooks series into a dynamic article delivery service, providing scholarly research reviews in advance of their print publication and offering born-digital content—blurring ebooks and serials into a new format. Lisa Jones, Acquisitions Librarian at Georgia Gwinnett College Library, talks about her experiences developing a library collection for a born-digital institution in a twenty-first century world encompassing both print and online. Rolf Janke, from Sage Publications shares his experiences of transitioning print content into the digital space focusing on how the value of content must not get lost in translation moving into the various digital forms.
