SCR will not close but will continue into 2010

Press release

10 December

For immediate release
Scholarly Communications Report will continue publishing

Earlier this year it was announced that SCR would close, but we 
are delighted to announce that it will be continuing into 2010 - 
and hopefully beyond.

PSP Consultancy is acquiring the title with effect from January 
2010 and will ensure that the newsletter continues to deliver a 
digest of all that is new and influential in scholarly publishing 
to keep you up to date with key industry developments. The 
newsletter will be written and edited by Pippa Smart.

This is a tremendous period of upheaval for scholarly 
communication and a huge amount of opinion and news is published 
daily; the aim of SCR is to summarise this in a format that busy 
professionals can quickly digest and which will help to inform 
their decisions and business.

Each month the newsletter selects key new items and provides a 
concise summary with its implications for commercial, society and 
academic publishers, intermediaries and subscription agents as 
well as library managers responsible for print and electronic 
resource provision.

*About SCR*

The newsletter was established in 1996 and was written and edited 
by David Brown and Albert Prior, both of whom will remain on the 
Editorial Board. It is published at the end of each month (with a 
combined July/August issue), and provided in print and online. 
See the website. www.screport.info

Renewal notices for 2010 will be sent out shortly, and in light 
of the current market and the change to the newsletter we are 
holding the rates at the 2009 levels.
