The academic publishing landscape has been changing rapidly in recent years. Many of these changes have led to contention and conflicts between key actors in the publishing process. Questions concerning the profits gleaned by commercial publishers intersect with those addressing the value of academic labor, the public nature of scholarly work and knowledge, the growing pressures of the neoliberal university and the ownership of intellectual property and its distribution. This roundtable panel brings together researchers with experience in different publishing venues to discuss their experiences and visions for the future of academic publishing more generally. This will form the basis for an open discussion of the issues raised with other session participants. The objective of these discussions is to strategise ways forward for academic publishing that places public knowledge creation and dissimination at the forefront.
