The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) are pleased to announce the Fourth International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference, which will be held from August 19 - 21, 2013 in Mexico City, Mexico.
Previous International PKP Scholarly Publishing conferences have brought together a remarkable array of presentations and participants from around the world. We anticipate an equally valuable experience in 2013.
Proposals that address one or more of the following topics are especially encouraged:
Reports on institutional, national, and regional open access policies, initiatives, and projects;
Sustainability and alternative models for open access publishing;
Quality, impact, and reach of Open Access publications;
Open Access and higher education;
Interoperability and information systems;
New reading and publishing technologies.
The conference will consist of a mixture of plenary presentations, parallel conference sessions, brief "lightning talks," posters, workshops, and an exhibitor’s hall. Presentations are welcome in both English and Spanish, with simultaneous translation available for some of the plenaries.
Proposals (500 word maximum) should be submitted by March 1, 2013, using the submission guidelines and form available on our web site. All proposals will be subject to peer-review and decision will be announced no later than April 15, 2013.
