FreePint's "sounding board" of information managers representing the full range of customers by industry, geography and professional industry has helped to firm up FreePint's editorial plans for the coming months. Upcoming Topic Series include The Social Enterprise; International Copyright; Licensing, Pricing & Negotiation; Next-Gen Competitive Intelligence; and Elearning for Information Skills.
As FreePint's Director of Research, I regularly get suggestions for product reviews, ideas for webinar topics and speakers, and requests to cover different topics.
So that we can make informed decisions about where to focus our resources, I turn to a "sounding board" made up of FreePint Subscription customers. They are all information managers representing the full range of our customers, by industry, geography and professional interests.
Our most recent survey of the sounding board has helped me firm up our editorial plans for the coming months:
FreePint Topic Series: The Social Enterprise
In January we'll launch the FreePint Topic Series: The Social Enterprise, to examine the ways organisations are maximising internal social connections and knowledge management.
A team of three co-producers will collaborate to commission, produce and comment on the content for this series. I'm delighted to be working more closely with contributors Sarah Dillingham, Shimrit Janes, and James Mullan on this project.
When you register your interest in this Topic Series, you'll receive regular updates on articles and reports published within the series. You'll also get early notification when we open up registration for webinars, and we'll provide you with a free copy of the Buyer's Guide published in the series, including valuable premium articles.

Future Topic Series
Also receiving the thumbs-up from the sounding board are the following:
Planned Product Reviews
We also consider products for review outside of the scope of Topic Series coverage. Contributor Chris Porter is now working on a cluster of reviews of products that monitor social media as well as news - tried-and-tested offerings like Vocus and Burrelles, but also innovators like Engage121.
Chris' reviews will begin to appear in January and continue through April.
After much redevelopment work, ISI Emerging Markets is finally ready for us to review its Emerging Markets Information Service (EMIS), planned for February publication.
Also making their way through the research process for review are Manzama, Arachnys, and Transactional Track Record (TTR).
