Call For Papers/Proposals: International Conference on Electronic
Publishing (ELPUB) 2017
Theme: Expanding Perspectives on Open Science: Communities, Cultures and
Diversity in Concepts and Practices

Conference dates and location : 6-8 June 2017, Limassol, Cyprus
Conference Host: Cyprus University of Technology
Conference Venue : Curium Palace Hotel
Website: http://elpub.net

The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB) is entering
its 3rd decade of continuous engagement with the changing landscape of
publishing and scholarly communications. The conference this year will
focus on the diverse perspectives on 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 conceptualize Open Science as a set of conditions waiting to be met,
without regard for regional differences, including cultural and historical
contexts of knowledge production. We, therefore, invite researchers and
practitioners from diverse backgrounds to share their results and ideas at
what we hope will be a highly interactive forum.

ELPUB is also exploring alternative models of interaction and co-creation
between scholars and citizen scientists and the role of dissemination and
publishing within these interactions. As such, the conference is open to a
broad range of questions, including:

● Who determines the agenda and direction of emerging discourses around
Open Science?
● How does Open Science challenge the current positions and power of
players and agents - in developing and developed countries, with scholars
and their networks, commercial and academia-based publishers, research
institutions and e-infrastructures, as well as their respective agendas?
● Are we seeing a converging global view of Open Science, or are there
disciplinary, regional, and other differences that are important to
● What are the gaps between existing Open Science policies, regulatory
frameworks, and implementation requirements and how should they be
● How do Open Science agendas relate to the Open Innovation agendas of
governments, funders and institutions? What is the impact of these agendas
on research funding and dissemination practices?

By assessing these interlinked questions, the aim is to improve our
understanding of current challenges and opportunities in the ecosystem of
open science, and how to move forward collaboratively in developing an
inclusive system that works for a broad range of participants. Please join
us in this exciting discussion!
