On 9th Febuary 2012, scholarly publishing professionals from across the UK convened in central London for an ALPSP event exploring how they could successfully implement digital publishing strategies.

The event was hosted by Ingenta's Louise Russell, and featured a presentation from our regular blogger, information architect Richard Ridge, who explained why he thought 'dancing bearware' (a term familiar to readers of this blog) as the greatest factor inhibiting the usability of online publishing platforms.

Afterwards John Peters, CEO of new scholarly publisher GSE Research, presented his thoughts on why scholarly publishing is a market ripe for disruption, expanding on the principles set out in his guest post on this blog 4 Strategies for Avoiding the Innovator's Dilemma.

We're publishing the slides from both presentations below in case you'd like to have a look. Thanks again to everyone who came to the event, and please let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
