At Pubget, we know how important scientific literature is. We even refer to it as the currency of the scientific community. Further, we like to think of ourselves as being ahead of the curve when it comes to changes in how scientific literature is accessed. If you’re an avid Pubget user, you know that goal is to make it easier to find and access scientific literature (that you have legal access to, of course). Apparently, we’re not the only ones who think we’re trendsetters.
Pubget President, Ryan Jones, has been asked to speak on a panel, alongside Reprints Desk, at the Buying and Selling eContent conference in Scottsdale, AZ this year. If you’re at the conference, stop by for what is sure to be an exciting discussion. If you’re not, stay tuned for an update from the talk.
Executive Forum — Models & Modalities
Ryan Jones, President, Pubget
Scott Ahlberg, Head of Corporate Services, Reprints Desk
Access, acquisition, and utilization of published scientific articles is a key activity in R&D, customer support, educational awareness, and promotion of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. Most companies spend well over $1M per year in accessing this type of peer-reviewed content. Ryan Jones of Pubget discusses the varying dynamics of different access models to content, with observations from the cutting edge of content access. Scott Ahlberg of Reprints Desk shares his analysis of article and content pricing, from traditional subscription to document delivery, and reuse licensing options. The presentation concludes with a look at traditional pricing theories and explores how they apply to article pricing and how they differ — all of which ultimately impacts content consumption.
