|Expanding Perspectives on Open Science: Communities, Cultures and Diversity in Concepts and Practices|
Theme:Expanding Perspectives on Open Science: Communities, Cultures and Diversity in Concepts and Practices
The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) is entering its 3rd decade of continuous engagement with the changing landscape of publishing and scholarly communications. Elpub 2017 continues the tradition, bringing together researchers, policy makers, public managers, publishers, librarians, developers, entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts.
Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and Sardinia. At the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa, its geographic location, rich, unique history and cultural diversity make it particularly well suited for hosting ELPUB 2017.
The conference this year will focus on the diverse perspectives about Open Science, one of the most widely discussed topics in research communications today. Despite the common claims that Open Science improves transparency and accountability throughout the research life cycle while democratizing the knowledge production process, empirical research and conceptual validation of these ideas has been limited. In addition, there is a growing tendency to conceptualise Open Science as a set of conditions waiting to be met, without regard for regional differences, including cultural and historical contexts of knowledge production. We, therefore, invite researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to share their results and ideas at what we hope will be a highly interactive forum.
Elpub is also exploring alternative models of interaction and co-creation between scholars and citizen scientists and the role of dissemination and publishing within these interactions. As such, the conference is open to a broad range of questions, including:
By assessing these interlinked questions, the aim is to improve our understanding of current challenges and opportunities in the ecosystem of open science, and how to move forward collaboratively in developing an inclusive system that works for a broad range of participants. Please join us in this exciting discussion!
