Scope
The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) enters its 
18th year. Elpub 2014 will continue the tradition, bringing together 
researchers, 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 2014 will particularly focus on the openness and use of research 
data as well as new and innovative publishing paradigms. We welcome 
presentations and discussions that demonstrate the role of cultural 
heritage and service organisations in the creation, accessibility, 
curation and long term preservation of data. We aim to provide a forum 
for discussing appraisal, citation and licensing of research data. Also, 
what is new with reviewing, publishing and editorial technology in a 
data-centric setting?

We invite contributions from members of the communities whose research 
and experiments are transforming the nature of electronic publishing and 
scholarly communication. Topics include but are not restricted to:
