2019 2nd AEUP Conference
The landscape of academic publishing is rapidly changing. Conventional funding and revenue models are declining, making scholarly publishing especially for those publishers challenging that serve small language areas or highly specialised target groups.
Meanwhile, new university presses have been founded all over Europe and beyond in the last few years, and existing ones are continually transforming towards digital dissemination. These changes respond to general trends in technology, dynamics in science policy, as well as funding programs and other initiatives, like PlanS pushing towards open access. The authors’, mainly scholars’ and researchers’, and their institutions’ prerequisites are constantly changing in the digital era.
