The Scholarly Publishing Research Cycle 2017: Perspectives and recommendations from the publishing, library and research sectors by David Stuart is a 60-page report, commissioned by Research Information, the leading multi-platform resource for the scholarly communications industry.

The report highlights the results of a global survey of publishers, librarians and researchers, which sought to focus on the greatest challenge that each of those stakeholder groups faces in the scholarly publishing cycle, and canvass their opinion on what improvements they feel those other sectors can make.

It provides invaluable insight for those in the publishing industry that want to better serve their customers, and provides hard evidence that will help make strategic decision-making easier.
