As scholarly publishing evolves, and the lines between content production and technology blur, we see companies emerging which, though often small, are nimble, and able to become “game changers” (if they have not done so already). They can affect a variety of functional areas–from content hosting and semantics to social networking and mobile–and become integral players in the publishing economy. Some selected start-ups will present an overview of their activities at this session, to foster a more open dialog between those who largely have been “traditional” publishers, and those who are on the outskirts, developing tools and applications that transform the way that content is disseminated and consumed.
