Data visualisation and the future of academic publishing

On 10 June 2016, the Interactive Data Network held a one-day event designed to bring together publishers, academics, journalists, and technologists around the topic of data visualisation. The aim was to foster discussion and set new goals for collaboration and innovation; a question of particular interest is how academic institutions and publishers might work together to support researchers in creating data visualisations.

Innovative visualisation technologies are enabling academics to communicate their research with new and larger audiences. Interactive visualisations of research data are increasingly available online and are encouraging publishers to reconsider past practices. This event will bring together publishers, academics, journalists and technologists around the topic of data visualisation. The aim is to foster discussion that will allow us to learn from one another and set new goals for collaboration and innovation.
