Expanding Perspectives on Open Science: Communities, Cultures and Diversity in Concepts and Practices
The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) approaches its 21st anniversary. Elpub 2017 is the 21st edition of the conference and it will continue the tradition, bringing together academics, publishers, lecturers, librarians, developers, entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts. These include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal, commercial and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme encompasses. Elpub 2017 will particularly focus on the interplay of two dimensions of the electronic publishing – the ever growing volume of digital collections, and the improved understanding of the widest user group, the one of the citizens. We aim to provide a forum for discussing how scale of collections, openness and trust change the way citizens contribute to modern research. We invite contributions from members of the communities whose research and experiments are transforming the nature of electronic publishing and scholarly communication.
Looking forward to your contributions to and participation in the conference.
