In my experience the needs of scholarly publishing and STEM publishing are beginning to converge. As content is shared across platforms, categories are a little blurry. Further, strict formatting constraints for some STEM publications are actually rather parallel to the needs of comic books. 

I agree with Liam about there being different needs for periodicals. This is especially true for metadata, workflow, and distribution. Should there be a category PUBLISHERS-PERIODICALS?

STM periodicals are different from other periodicals because of formatting constraints) and from scholarly publishing in general, of course, especially in terms of workflow.

Possibly worth keeping them separate because they're generally different people too.
