Event: ePublishing in the Scholarly Community

Posted by Megan on May 17, 2010

McGill Library is pleased to invite you to “ePublishing in the Scholarly Community”, a day of sessions devoted to scholarly ePublishing, on Friday, May 28, 2010, to complement the yearly Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences (a.k.a. the SSHRC Congress) being held at Concordia this year.

Sessions will be held throughout the day, with a featured panel discussion at 1:45- 3:00 PM featuring John Willinksy, internationally recognized Director of the Public Knowledge Project, author of The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship, and recent winner of the Frederick G. Kilgour Award for Research in Library and Information Technology, as well as members of Athabasca University Press. The topic of discussion, sure to be lively, is “New Models for the Scholarly Monograph”.

The day will also include sessions, with some hands-on training, on new technologies being used for ePublishing – specifically the software suite from the Public Knowledge Project (http://pkp.sfu.ca), an international partnership working to improving the quality of research. Beginners and advanced users, or even the merely curious, are welcome. There will also be an update on the newest PKP product, Open Monograph Press, which will help societies to publish open access books online.

All events are free, but registration is required as space is limited. For more details or to register, please visit http://www.bit.ly/ePublishingDay, or email Amy Buckland at amy.buckland @ mcgill.ca.
