The Conversation: Research and Scholarly Publishing in the Age of Big Data #alpsp16

This post was originally published on this site


Ziyad Marar, Global Publishing Director at SAGE Publishing chaired the opening plenary at the 2016 ALPSP Conference. He was joined by his colleague, Ian Mulvany, who is SAGE’s Head of Product Innovation and Francine Bennett, CEO and co founder of big data consultancy Mastodon C. They discussed how data is to the 21st century what oil was to the 20th Century and this has major implications for researchers and publishers alike. Information of all kinds is now being produced, collected, and analyzed at unprecedented speed, breadth, depth and scale. The big data revolution promises to ask and answer fundamental questions about individuals and collectives, but large datasets alone will not solve major social or scientific problems.
