The STM Publishing Industry

Generation and dissemination of information is nearly a $766 billion industry in 2016, as per the Outsell report. The term "Information providers" encompasses a wide variety of companies such as Financial Information Aggregators and Providers, not-for-profit associations and scholarly societies, online portals and the Scientific, Technical and Medical (STM) Publishing Industry. The STM Publishing industry facilitates the quest, accessibility, preservation and widespread usage of scientific discovery and insights through the publication of scientific and medical journals. Talking about the importance of STM Publishing, it is integral to research because research data has little or no value unless it is published in a reputed journal.

Publishing has its costs and STM Publishing is no different, and the industry has taken steps to deal with this through collective investment and the use of sustainable business models. Another major challenge is the urgent need to switch to “online-only”, as the increasing costs of print journals are discouraging people from opting for print subscriptions.
