SAGE at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Fredericton, New Brunswick

Since last Friday, SAGE has been meeting and greeting academics in the social sciences in Canada for the Congress of  the Humanities and Social Sciences in Fredericton, New Brunswick. We’ve had the opportunity to speak with countless professors, grad students and leaders of various societies and associations.

SAGE’s own Bob Howard, Executive Director of Social Science Journals, sat on an interesting panel discussion by the Canadian Association of Learned Journals about open access with other leaders in the publishing world including:

  • Antoine Del Busso, Director General, Les Presses de l’Université de Montréal
  • David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director Taylor and Francis
  • Donna Livingstone, Director, University of Calgary Press
The discussion lead to some interesting takes on where publishing is going in the future, how librarians, scholars and publishers can work together for open access, and the role of societies in helping promote online usage of journals.  The members of the Canadian Association of Learned Journals was kind enough to gather these opinions and panels in the room for some great conversations around the challenges of journals and associations today.
We’re here at the Congress until early Friday and hope to get a chance to learn more about the trials of professors before we leave. One this is clear: the social sciences love SAGE. And we love helping further the learning and debates.
