What does a “Read & Publish” model actually mean for librarians and for publishers? Read & Publish arrangements are becoming more prominent across the scholarly communications landscape, especially with national consortia in Europe. What goes into creating these agreements, and what will their impact be on authors, librarians, and publishers? A panel of librarians and publishers (to be announced), moderated by AIP Publishing, will talk about the opportunities and challenges presented by developing and implementing a model that merges publication and access to content.

By bringing stakeholders together, this panel will offer frank insights into what librarians need to know if their institution implements an R&P program, as well as open discussion on what publishers can do to make this model sustainable and transparent. Questions will be solicited from conference attendees in advance of the session, and time will be allotted for Q&A.
