    Title: Trust Matters: Building an understanding of the publishing process in an open research environment
    Trust not only plays a central part in building consistency for open research but is also of great importance in the publication process and for the interaction between funders, researchers, research organisations and publishers. Who do you trust and why and how to make this process more transparent is one of the central questions within the publishing process which goes far beyond producing pdfs and managing peer review. This talk will assess the points of trust with a publisher and highlight where and how we at Springer Nature are aiming to increase trust in an open research environment.
