APE 2019 – Academic Publishing in Europe
15.01.2019 bis 16.01.2019
Platforms or Pipelines? Where is the Value in Scholarly Communications?
Publishers cannot take their role for granted. New platforms are emerging that may replace old workflows, lifting them away from publishers large and small. As well as funders, technology companies and governments starting to control parts of the scholarly communication network, large commercial players are also now operating parts of the pipeline. Is this well-overdue innovation to support the needs of researchers or should we worry about how this emerging infrastructure will endure the passing of time and not become a moment of enthusiasm by a few well-funded organisations?
We explore the need for new talent and skills in this rapidly expanding ecosphere, and examine how we might encourage and nurture change that helps build on the fundamental stewardship and integrity of the scholarly record…
There are many open questions and nobody really can predict how the world of scholarly communication and scientific publishing will look like in the years to come.
So there is a lot to talk about and we need to share experiences.
The APE 2019 Full Conference Program is being developed by a highly reputed Program Committee, guaranteeing internationality, actuality and topical interests.
Chairman of the Program Committee is Robert Campbell. Please have a look at the following pages.
The APE Pre-Conference will be organized in cooperation with the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP)
The APE Conferences aim at a better understanding of scholarly communication and the role of information in science, education and society. They encourage the debate about the future of value-added scientific publishing, information dissemination and access to scientific results and offer an independent forum for ‘open minds’. Participants have enjoyed this very open atmosphere in the Academy of Sciences at the famous Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte since the beginnings in 2006.
