Embark on an explorative journey through the rapidly changing realm of academic publishing with the premiere of “Insights Xchange – Conversations Shaping Research,” a podcast by Cactus Communications (CACTUS) and hosted by industry expert Nikesh Gosalia. Set to make its debut in early October, this pioneering podcast promises to delve into the pivotal issues, emerging trends, and impactful technologies shaping the research world.

In a time where the academic sector grapples with a multitude of challenges – transitioning to Open Access (OA), managing Article Processing Charges (APC) affordability, navigating the onset of Artificial Intelligence (AI), maintaining research integrity, understanding peer review processes, and bridging funding gaps – Nikesh aims to engage with preeminent individuals straddling academia, research, technology, and funding, seeking pathways ahead. The specialists will unveil novel insights, share their expertise, and present invaluable viewpoints on the recent advancements in research publishing.

Nikesh Gosalia, the podcast’s anchor and President of Global Academic and Publisher Relations at CACTUS, remarked on the launch, “Insights Xchange is an interesting concept where we are building a platform where those in the business of academic research can find a neutral space to discuss the issues that bother them, as well as articulating the possible solutions for these. With this series, a rebranded avatar of our popular podcast ‘All Things SciComm’, we are taking our commitment to the research ecosystem to the next level. This podcast embodies our dedication to facilitating meaningful conversations, sharing valuable insights, and fostering a stronger, more connected research community. We invite all those passionate about academic publishing to join us on this exciting journey of discovery.”
