International Conference on Electronic Publishing 2018 (ELPUB)
Connecting the Knowledge Commons: From Projects to Sustainable
June 22-24, 2018
University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada
Full disclosure: I am a member of the programme committee.
ELPUB 2018 marks the 22nd edition of the International Conference in ELectronic PUBlishing and the 10th anniversary of the meeting being held in Toronto.
For over two decades, ELPUB has featured research and innovations in digital publishing, with a focus on transforming the nature of scholarly communication. The conference has attracted a diverse international community of librarians, developers, publishers, entrepreneurs, administrators and researchers across the disciplines in the sciences and the humanities.
The theme for ELPUB 2018 is Connecting the Knowledge Commons: From Projects to Sustainable Infrastructure. The question of sustainability in the open access movement has been widely debated, but satisfactory answers and long term solutions have yet to be generated.
Market-driven versions of open access and open science are growing in prevalence, as well as a growing dependence on commercial publishers for the infrastructures needed to openly and democratically create and communicate knowledge.
This year¹s theme challenges us to collaborate on the design and implementation of a sustainable community-driven research communication infrastructure that is also inclusive of diverse forms of knowledge making and sharing.
The conference program committee invites contributions from members of the community whose research and experiments are focused on sustainability models for community based open infrastructure, trust and governance of the Knowledge Commons, and transforming the nature of scholarly communications.
If you are interested in sharing your research, ideas, and tools that contribute to the theme or just join in the discussion, please consider participating!
