This presentation will begin with an overview of why journals move between publishers, including a brief discussion of the relationships between scholarly societies and publishers. It will then discuss the implications of journals moving between publishers and the impact these moves have on libraries, publishers, intermediaries, and users. Next, it will introduce Project Transfer, an international working group made up of librarians, publishers, and intermediaries, formed to address some of the problems created by journal transfers. The presentation will outline the aims and objectives of Project Transfer and will apprise attendees of the progress the working group has made so far, the challenges we have run into, and the next steps that will be undertaken.
