Are you ready for the GDPR?

Byron Russell attended a recent Publishers Association seminar on the new 2018 Data Protection Regulations – the GDPR. This is what he found out.

On May 18, 2018, the new GDPR (personal data protection) regulations come into effect, and this will have radical implications for all of us. Although this is an EU regulation – and despite Brexit – it will be absorbed into UK law and supplant the current regulations (the Data Protection Act 1998). Note that the new regulations affect all publishers who process data that comes from, or is fed to, the European Union – so US Publishers are potentially affected too.

ALPSP conference report

It’s so bracing in the ALPSP!

Byron Russell was in “sunny” Holland for the 10th Anniversary ALPSP Conference

The ALPSP conference this year in celebration of its 10th anniversary was held in Noordwijk-an upmarket resort on the Dutch coast just a few yards from sandy beach. Unfortunately, on the first day of the conference, Holland saw one of the heaviest gales in a many a year.  The wind howled along the promenade, tearing up the sand and giving all participants what Audrey McCulloch drolly described as a free micro dermabrasion.

SSP conference report

Fiona Carr, US Account Manager, Ingenta Connect

In June 2017, Ingenta attended and exhibited at the Society for Scholarly Publishing Annual Conference (SSP) in Boston, USA.  SSP is a key event on the publishing calendar and proved to be extremely busy for us.   There were some excellent keynote and plenary speakers throughout the event.  For example, Paula Stephans of Georgia State University opened the conference with a very strong keynote talking about the changing characteristics of ‘academe’ and how it’s now regarded as an alternative career to being in industry.

Kent Anderson, CEO

Nicola Poser, Managing Director

For many this time of year, there is a slight chill in the crisp air and a gorgeous blue sky.  We know autumn is approaching. We’re booking travel to meetings again, packing and unpacking, and bracing for more emails and messages. It all signals that selling season is here!

Ingenta Open – phase 2!

The Frankfurt Book Fair 2017 marks the first anniversary of the launch of Ingenta Open, our new hub for open access content and open access publishers.

There have been two new major developments over the past 12 months since launch. The first is that we are now indexing all the content from the directory of open access journals (DOAJ). The second is that we are also indexing all the open access articles from hybrid journals that are hosted on Ingenta Connect. This unique feature will enable all researchers to find open access content from both fully open access journals and hybrid channels in just one place, and drive additional traffic to subscribed and PPV content on Ingenta Connect.

Meta – helping academics understand and discover global research

Meta is a non-commercial tool that helps scientists understand global research developments and trends. Meta uses artificial intelligence (AI) to read the world’s scholarly papers, understand what is in them, and deliver their insights to researchers in real time.  Early this year Meta was acquired by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to help accelerate the pace of scientific discovery (see ).

Here now – the new COUNTER 5 release

COUNTER 5 is in our Roadmap for implementation in the 2018 pipeline. Byron Russell talked to Lorraine Estelle, COUNTER Project Director, to find out more about the updated industry-standard statistical reporting tool for librarians everywhere.

The team at Project COUNTER felt that they needed to make the COUNTER code of practice far more accessible, and have now developed a new website which presents user-friendly guides for libraries on how to best use reports, and – very importantly – a guide for publishers to aid those who are not fully compliant yet, and those who are not yet compliant at all.  Details are available at

Getting it right

By John Pettigrew, CEO and Founder of We Are Futureproofs Ltd

Successful publishing has always been a case of getting the right content to the right customer at the right time. The challenge of the past 20 years, though, has been that “right” has changed its meaning for each of those three key aspects.
