Under the rather eye catching headline The Ape and the iPad David Worlock, BIIA’s Chairman,  stated that the key trends of 2011 will always be, for him, the landmark strides made towards incorporating content into the workflow of professionals , and the progress made in associating previously unthinkable data collections (not linked by metadata , structure and /or location) in ways that allowed us draw out fresh analytical conclusions not otherwise available to us.  For example he observed how one publisher defines the business no longer as scientific publishing but as a high tech science data handling company.  

We recommend you read his interesting observations as we close out 2011.
