Academic publishing and digital bibliodiversity
Welcome to the 23rd edition of the International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ElPub) 2019 which will celebrate the cultural diversity in all aspects of the transmission and perception of the written, spoken and illustrated word!
The conference will take place between the 2nd and the 4th of June of 2019 at the Palais du Pharo, Marseille, France.
In 2019, the Electronic Publishing conference will expand your horizons and perceptions! Taking as an inspirational starting point the concept of bibliodiversity, a term coined by Chilean publishers in the 1990s, the forum will revisit its definition and explore what it means today. Being organised five years after the adoption of theInternational Declaration of Independent Publishers to Promote and Strengthen Bibliodiversity Together, supported in 2014 by 400 publishers from 45 countries, the conference aims to bring together the enquiring academic, professional and publishing industry minds keen to explore the ever evolving nature of the knowledge transmission within human societies…”
