We are all about helping organizations adapt to dynamic environments whether within the publishing sector or the funder landscape. When asked about navigating uncertainty during our April News and Views discussion, Founder Ann Michael pointed to cross-publisher and cross-organization collaboration as the way forward.

One stellar example of this kind of pragmatic collaboration to advance outcomes is the C19 Rapid Review Initiative between publishers, engineered to fast track critical Coronavirus related research by sharing reviewers and submissions. Members of this initiative include PLOS, Hindawi, Royal Society, PeerJ, and more, and supporters include OASPA and others.

We are very pleased to announce our participation in the upcoming C19 Rapid Review Founders Roundtable discussion, facilitating publishers to test the limits of this collaboration. To explore future scenarios for continued work together in a post-Coronavirus environment.

Delta Think CCO Lori Carlin will moderate the discussion, which will include Hindawi’s Sarah Greaves, PeerJ’s Pete Binfield, PLOS’ Joerg Heber, and Royal Society’s Phil Hurst. Please join us, as the discussion will include an opportunity for live Q&A. See you there!
