Dove Medical Press celebrates 10 years in publishing by bringing you Open Outlook

The Open Outlook program launches with two main topics, Open Access in Action and Open Outlook: COPD.

Open Access in Action
As part of Open Outlook, we’ve partnered with Library Journal to develop Open Access in Action. Open Access in Action will take an in-depth look at the practical aspects of supporting Open Access and changes on the horizon for publishing. Hosted on Library Journal’s website, the program will feature editorial content, expert video insights and interviews, and news and resources developed in tandem with librarians and industry experts.

Meredith Schwartz, Executive Editor of Library Journal said of the partnership, "Although the Open Access publishing model has been gaining in popularity for some time, academic librarians still grapple with how best to manage content, connect readers with the right information, and support researchers on a limited budget and in a rapidly changing technological landscape. The aim of Open Access in Action is to share best practices and highlight innovative initiatives. We are excited to collaborate with Dove Medical Press, a publisher of Open Access journals, on this offering."

Open Outlook: COPD
We have also created a special feature to our International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (IJCOPD): a series of COPD video perspectives that explores the horizon of COPD treatment. The series, called Open Outlook: COPD, looks at the impact of advances on COPD management and outlines what this means for future research. Contributors include IJCOPD Editor-in-Chief Dr Richard Russell, Associate Editor Professor David Mannino, and Professor Peter Barnes. View the first videos.

Commitment to Open Access
Explaining the reason for the launch of Open Outlook, Kevin Toale, Director of Dove Medical Press, said, "We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary in publishing. This prompted us to think about the exciting changes that are evolving, future directions and what we could do to help support librarians, authors and readers in the scholarly space. This program will be an important part of our mission to support the Open Access publishing model and our commitment to it."

Our hope is that Open Outlook will help you prepare for the opportunities that lie ahead. We look forward to supporting and working with you in the months and years to come, creating new possibilities in research and publishing.

The Open Outlook program will run for one year, and new topics will be added as they occur. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for new Open Outlook topic alerts.
