ELPUB 2018 marks the 22nd edition of the International Conference in Electronic Publishing and the 10th anniversary of the meeting being held in Toronto, Canada. 

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, yet satisfactory answers 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.

Suggested themes and topics for discussion:

  • Tools and technology infrastructure
  • Social and political infrastructure
  • Challenges and opportunities for open access in the Global South
  • Community-based research and citizen science
  • Funding and sustainability

If you are interested in sharing your research, ideas, and tools that contribute to the theme or just join in the discussion, please consider participating in the meeting!
