Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WOODBURY, N.J. - Aug 09, 2017 - Riverwinds Consulting recently debuted Publishing Defined, a free educational video channel, that benefits all levels of scholarly publishing professionals.
Publishing Defined launched in late 2016 to address issues in academic and scholarly publishing, such as open access, predatory publishing, altmetrics, Sci-Hub, and text mining, among others. Each three- to five-minute video covers the key trends in each topic and relates it to the overall landscape of technical publishing.
New videos are released every Monday at YouTube.com/JohnBond/. To date, more than fifty videos have been posted with a total of over 10,000 views to this specialized audience. The 250+ subscribers range from mid-career professionals at publishers, to society and association leadership, academics, and researchers. The topics, while very focused, resonate with the tight knit community of scholarly publishers.
“There has been a very positive response to both the video topics and format,” said John Bond, host of Publishing Defined and President of Riverwinds Consulting. “With the explosive growth of video content and free educational materials, this video channel has been a valuable resource for many professionals within the publishing field.”
Those interested in Publishing Defined can subscribe at www.YouTube.com/JohnBond/. All existing videos are available on the channel. Future topics may be suggested to John Bond through the channel’s comment section or by email.
