This is a fairly accurate description of what's happened in scholarly journals publishing over the last five years. This talk will cover what's worked, what hasn't, and try to make some predictions about what may come. What are publishers concerned about and how are changes in publishing technology altering how scholars do their work are among the topics to be discussed.
