Join us in an ongoing international debate about the Future of Scholarly Communication & Scientific Publishing.

Publishing 2020: Ramping up Relevance in a Multi-faceted, Fragmenting System of Research Output and Innovation

In 2020 everything should be open. But what comes after Open Access, Open Peer Review, Open Science? Will there still be publishers and libraries?

We say YES. Now it is time to show the relevant work that publishers and librarians are doing to make this major transition possible and how we will manage information and guarantee quality in the future. But there will be new players as well and APE 2018 opens the door to present their ideas.

There are still 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 2018 Full Conference Program has been developed by a highly reputed Program Committee, guaranteeing internationality, actuality and topical interests. 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.
