In June we run an annual conference on disruptions in the publishing industry which aims to bring together people from the publishing industry who would not normally meet. This melting pot of writers, entrepreneurs, publishers and interested parties results in a fascinating day of discussion, ideas and stories! The event is held in Edinburgh and we broadcast the talks live so people from around the world can watch and take part via Google+ and Twitter.
You can see the speakers, programme and talks from the June 2013 Edinburgh Publishing Conference here. You can view all of the sessions from this year's conference on YouTube. We also hold satellite EPC events throughout the year: to be the first to hear about our events sign up for our newsletter.
Date: 25th October, 3pm - 6pm
Venue: 4.31, Informatics Forum
Tickets: Free (online tickets also available)
The way scientists and researchers communicate their work is evolving. Predictions indicate that scientific publishing will change more in the next 10 years than it has in the past 200. There has been an explosion in the number of open access journals, data sharing platforms and open source projects in recent years and there has never been more ways to share and publish your work.
Join us for an afternoon of talks exploring the open access/data landscape during Open Access Week. We will be releasing more details about the event and the speakers soon. After the event we hope you can join us down the pub to continue the discussion! More information>>>
