New Oxford Conference puts the Spotlight on China

Oxford Brooks University, Ingenta (UK) Limited and the Oxford Confucius Institute are delighted to announce the 2018 Symposium on Scholarly Publishing in Europe and China. This new event, one of the first of its kind in Europe to focus on building collaborative networks between academic publishing houses in China and the west, brings together experts and delegates in order to better understand each other’s needs and explore solutions and opportunities for future collaboration.

The program continues the following day with four plenary sessions and four panel discussions, covering topics such as the future of academic publishing, open access, search and discovery and the changing roles of authors and researchers. Overnight accommodation is available in College as a no-cost option.
