Just out! Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Electronic Publishing : Expanding Perspectives on Open Science

International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) 2017 theme is Expanding Perspectives on Open Science: Communities, Cultures and Diversity in Concepts and Practices. The Conference focuses 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.

Intended to generate discussion and debate on the potential and limitations of openness, the proceedings of Elpub 2017:

  • address the current challenges and opportunities in the ecosystem of Open Science, and
  • explore how to move forward in developing an inclusive system that will work for a much broader range of participants.

The proceedings will be of interest to all those concerned with electronic publishing, and Open Science in particular.
