PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2015

The fifth PKP international scholarly publishing conference will be an opportunity for participants to engage on the important concept of openness from a variety of perspectives. Open source, open science, open data, open access, open education, and open learning are not only becoming integral themes in the scholarly communication landscape, but also in education, librarianship, economics, politics, and more. Following on this year’s Open Access Week theme “Generation Open”, this conference will particularly focus on the next generation of students and early career researchers. This next generation are not only digital born natives, but open digital born natives; who are influenced by the broad idea of openness in many ways.

    PKP5 | The PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference: The Next Generation of Open Scholarship

    The fifth PKP international scholarly publishing conference will be an opportunity for participants to engage on the important concept of openness in all of its manifestations. Open source, open science, open data, open access, open education, and open learning are not only integral themes in the scholarly communication landscape, but also in education, librarianship, economics, politics, and more. Following on 2014’s Open Access Week theme “Generation Open”, this conference will particularly focus on the next generation of scholars and researchers. This next generation are not only digital natives, but open digital natives; who are influenced by the broad ideas of openness in many ways. As SPARC noted when announcing the OA Week theme, students and early career researchers are the future of the Academy, and the ultimate success of the Open Access movement depends on them.

    In collaboration with SFU’s Canadian Institute for Studies in Publishing and the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab / Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, the conference will address a wide range of topics such as open access publishing, global knowledge creation and sharing, open educational resources, the digital humanities, current and future scholars as publishers, and open source technologies. It will provide opportunities to explore a new array of connections among scholarship, technology, and community, all focussed around the broad theme of openness.

    The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) are pleased to announce the Fourth International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference, which will be held from August 19 - 21, 2013 in Mexico City, Mexico.

    This is the first time that the PKP Conference is being held in Latin America, a region of the world that publishes almost exclusively in Open Access. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for exchange on innovative work in scholarly publishing, with a focus on the contributions of open source technologies. We look forward to hosting editors, publishers, librarians, researchers, developers, content aggregators, and PKP’s growing user community from around the world.

    Previous International PKP Scholarly Publishing conferences have brought together a remarkable array of presentations and participants from around the world. We anticipate an equally valuable experience in 2013.
