2017 Seminar

The Wiley Executive Seminar is an annual event held in London for learned societies and association staff.

The research process is made better by many contributors, and societies and publishers have a unique and important role to play in supporting the discovery process, from supporting research practice to enabling research communication and enhancing research impact. This year, our theme at the London Seminar is “Partnering to Support the Research Process.” Our speakers will explore how we can work together to ensure that the process of research discovery is the best that it can be.

Very valuable to be able to talk to a wide range of Wiley staff and to share experiences.
