STM Week 2016 — Stray Thoughts on Security, Open Access, and Data
What has become known as “STM Week” represents a series of meetings in London which expanded this year to include London Information International as a competing/complementary event in another part of the city (known to some as “western Norway,” depending on how that train ride to the eXcel Center felt to you).
STM Innovations has become one of the industry’s better meetings. This year’s event was focused on the relatively worrisome and grim subject of cybersecurity, focusing on the publisher’s role in it. The theme jibed with discussions earlier in the week at the STM FutureLab meeting, a collective discussion I’ve been attending for about a decade now, and one that never disappoints. Other meetings throughout the week sought to move these deliberations along the road toward a solution set.
