18th International Conference on Electronic Publishing

Let's put data to use: digital scholarship for the next generation

Alexander Technological Education Institute of Thessaloniki

June 19-20, 2014 - Thessaloniki, Greece



The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) enters its 18th year. Elpub 2014 will continue the tradition, bringing together researchers, lecturers, librarians, developers,  entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts. These include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal, commercial and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme encompasses.

Elpub 2014 will particularly focus on the openness and use of research data as well as new and innovative publishing paradigms. We welcome presentations and discussions that demonstrate the role of cultural heritage and service organizations in the creation, accessibility, curation and long term preservation of data. We aim to provide a forum for discussing appraisal, citation and licensing of research data. Also, what is new with reviewing, publishing and editorial technology in a data-centric setting?

We invite contributions from members of the communities whose research and experiments are transforming the nature of electronic publishing and scholarly communication.
