ELPUB 2018 Conference Programme

Connecting the Knowledge Commons:
From Projects to Sustainable Infrastructure

June 22-24, 2018
University of Toronto, Canada

Conference Theme - Connecting the Knowledge Commons: From Projects to Sustainable Infrastructure

The theme for ELPUB 2018 is Connecting the Knowledge Commons: From Projects to Sustainable Infrastructure. The question of sustainability in the open access movement has been widely debated, but satisfactory answers and long term solutions have yet to be generated.

Market-driven versions of open access and open science are growing in prevalence, as well as a growing dependence on commercial publishers for the infrastructures needed to openly and democratically create and communicate knowledge.

This year’s theme challenges us to collaborate on the design and implementation of a sustainable community-driven research communication infrastructure that is also inclusive of diverse forms of knowledge making and sharing.

We are actively soliciting papers and participation in the conference. Learn more by visiting our Call for Papers and Participation overview.

We look forward to seeing you in Toronto, Canada in 2018. Check back regularly for the latest schedule and details about conference events, or sign up for our e-newsletter to receive updates straight to your inbox!
