Market Research - What’s become... of new entrants in research workflows and scholarly communication?
Full report to be published as preprint on OSF Preprints shortly.
To systematically create a list of the new entrants in research workflows and scholarly communication that I’ve seen over the years, I used a range of resources, listed hereunder:
400+ Tools and innovations in scholarly communication (charting the creation and availability (supply side))[i]. This database continues to build on the 2015-2016 survey by Bianca Kramer & Jeroen Bosman (both at Utrecht University Library), who are interested in the way information is created, shared, and processed in academia[ii]. From this source I pulled 683 players. From the answers to the open and closed questions in the 2015-2016 survey I found 225 players.
Presenters at STM events[iii] from 2010-2017. This contributed 53 players.
Outsell[iv] ‘Companies to watch’, as per their annual Information Industry Outlook (2009-2017). This source provided 29 players.
Pitches at APE (Academic Publishing in Europe) Conferences[v] between 2011-2017. Here I found 44 players.
Nominees for the ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing. This source contributed 10 players from 2014-2017.[vi].
This file contains the 'long list' per 31 December 2018.
