Author Centricity: How is author experience shaping the scholarly communications landscape?’taking place on Wednesday, 11 April, 10-11am in The Faculty, will explore how the development of new tools, services and partnerships helps in delivering an excellent author experience. Panellists will demonstrate how they are adapting to meet the ever-evolving needs of authors through research and the implementation of new initiatives.
