At a recent Research to Reader Conference, a panel including Haseeb Irfanullah, a visiting fellow at the Center for Sustainable Development, explored strategies to diversify scholarly research authorship. This is in the context of ongoing calls for social change have drawn attention to the need in scholarly publishing for greater equity, diversity, and inclusion, including for peer review, editorial practices, and business models.
To help explore these issues, this week's INSPIRING STEM PODCAST welcomes as our guest Jamie Carmichael, Senior Director for Information and Content Solutions at the Copyright Clearance Center.
Jamie brings nearly 20 years of publishing experience to her current role, where she is responsible for the strategic direction of CCC’s flagship Open Access platform, RightsLink for Scientific Communications, and heads go-to-market efforts for new products and services across the scholarly publishing ecosystem.
In her 10 years with CCC, she’s held leadership positions across CCC’s publisher portfolio of rights licensing, content delivery, software, and professional services offerings, leading teams of product managers and product marketers to solve unmet market needs at the intersection of customer collaboration and technology advancements.
Our conversation explores the understanding that open without equity is neither. We discuss also how CCC is collaborating to increase transparency and efficiencies in scholarly communications and an update following the 2019 Future of Science Leadership Summit hosted by CCC and Outsell.
