Call for Papers
20th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Göttingen, Germany)

Positioning and Power in Academic Publishing: Players, Agents and Agendas
7-9 June 2016, Göttingen, Germany

Conference web site: www.elpub.net
FB: https://www.facebook.com/ELPUBConference

Proceedings will be published open access by IOS Press. Selected papers 
will be published in a special edition of the Journal Information 
Services & Use.
The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) reaches 
its 20th anniversary! Elpub 2016 continues the tradition, and brings 
together scholars, publishers, lecturers, librarians, developers, 
entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues 
regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts.
Elpub 2016 will have a fresh look on the current ecosystem of scholarly 
publishing including the positioning of stakeholders and distribution of 
economic, technological and discursive power. Elpub will also open the 
floor for emerging alternatives in how scholars and citizens interact 
with scholarly content  and what role dissemination and publishing plays 
in these interactions. Questions to be raised include: What is the core 
of publishing today? How does agenda setting in emerging frameworks like 
Open Science function and what is the nature of power of the referring 
scholarly discourses? How does this relate to the European and 
world-wide Open Science and Open Innovation agenda of funders and 
institutions, and how does this look like in publishing practice?
The conference will investigate the position and power of players and 
agents, - e.g. scholars and their networks, legacy and academia-owned 
publishers, research institutions and e-infrastructures - as well as 
their respective agendas. When looking at these interlinked topics, we 
aim to sharpen the view for current challenges and ways forward to 
reshape the publishing system. You are most welcome to join us in this 
exciting discussion!
