Take the guesswork out of strategy decisions
In order to develop a publishing strategy that significantly differentiates your journals in the market, you need to have the right insights to the research landscape. Publishers like you are trying to stay competitive by making the best editorial decisions about which manuscripts to include. But it’s not only an editorial problem, it’s also a competitive intelligence problem – you need the right information about the market.
Without the right insights, you’re only guessing at what the real picture looks like, where you stand in it, and how to thrive in the market. If you try to move forward by guessing, you risk losing (or never getting) a foothold in the research market and even potentially being consolidated into a larger publisher.
With access to the most complete, consistent, and impartial dataset about the research landscape, you can know which subject areas are getting more funding, which hot topics might be up and coming, and where there are gaps in coverage. When you work with Clarivate, you can take the guesswork out of publishing strategy decisions and feel confident about the direction that you set for your organization.

Reach the right people
With increased competition in the scholarly publishing industry, it’s becoming more difficult to differentiate journal titles and conference meetings. Authors have more options for which journals to read, where to publish their papers, and which conferences to attend. Many publishers and societies are seeing their traditional pool of researchers for authors, reviewers, readers, and conference attendees shrink and therefore unable to sustain growth.
So now it’s more imperative than ever that you reach the right people with your communications. Find out more about how you can utilize Web of Science Author Connect to access two million active researchers – constantly updated and curated – specifically targeted for your needs.
