If you have a question about this talk, please contact Vincent Boyer.

This talk summarizes the changing role of a science publisher in today’s information society. Aspects of relevance to scientists as readers (existing and novel products, types of access) will be described, as will the spectrum of opportunities for those wishing to publish their work. The emphasis will be (e)book publishing in physics – my speciality – but hopefully I can also field questions about journals. A few words about the history of Springer (founded 1842), and some remarks about how my work as an editor has changed over the last 25 years will provide a frame of reference. Wherever possible I give examples connected to Birmingham and to relevant areas of research.

This talk is part of the Cold Atoms series.
