Abstract : This updated report is part of a research project on the structuring of business ecosystem related to scientific periodicals. More specifically, this project aims to study the structuring of business practices and strategic practices of the actors operating within a business ecosystem currently undergoing major transformation, namely the production of science and the communication of their results. This report is one of the components of this project and focuses on the structuring of the business ecosystem within publication of scientific periodicals. The publication of articles in scientific periodicals is growing much faster than the growing number of scientists. Despite these increases, which undoubtedly reflect the dynamism in the world of the publication of scientific periodicals and greater accessibility to publication, scientists express great discomfort at this important part of their research activities. These discomforts are often expressed only from the point of view of the actors of the scientific fields, that is to say, from a scientific-centrist perspective. However, the publication of scientific periodicals involves a group of actors from different environments. The aim of this report is therefore to present these actors through their corporate structure and their connections. At the end of our study, we can see that the main economic actors formed a business ecosystem evolving around two oligopolies working on international markets (one in the publishing industry and the other in the aggregation industry) composed mainly of private firms, including private investment firms, and that they operate in a low-growth market. We also found that the dynamics of this business ecosystem is driven by a set of strategic cooperations
