Evolving Roles and Relationships for a Sustainable Publishing Ecosystem: A Discussion with the CSE Industry Advisory Board

The landscape of scientific editing and publishing is in a seemingly constant state of flux, with disruptions arising from new technologies (AI!), business models (OA!), research integrity concerns (paper mills!), and more. At the center of the scientific publishing ecosystem is an interconnected collection of societies, publishers, editors, and supporting organizations and companies working to manage these disruptions while promoting the responsible and effective communication of science.

In this opening session at the CSE Annual Meeting, members of the CSE Industry Advisory Board, representing commercial publishers, consultants, and societies, will explore the ways these challenges and opportunities play out from their respective perspectives. This session aims to provide attendees with a thought-provoking foundation for the many topics they will consider throughout the meeting.

Paper mills and predatory publishers are using a variety of tactics that compromise the integrity of the scientific record, including selling content, fabricating or plagiarizing content, selling authorship, false representation, and manipulating peer review. In this traditional Ethics Clinic, presenters will share cases of paper mill activity and discuss the specific tools they are using and policy changes they have enacted to prevent paper mills from infiltrating and impacting their publications. Presenters will help educate participants on predatory publishers to help authors and reviewers become more aware of unethical behavior. This is an interactive session, so please come prepared to share and learn!
