The Academic Publishing Conference in Europe (APE)

We are in an age of change. Scholarly publishing needs embrace and be energised by what is possible and to acknowledge and listen to new demands by all our stakeholders. Collaboration is key – only then can we drive change, developing better ways to support a high quality, efficient system for communicating the outcomes of research. In next year’s conference we bring different perspectives together to think about how we tackle key issues and make progress.

Annual Meeting place

Since its inception in 2006, APE is ‘the’ annual meeting place for all stakeholders in scholarly communication and scientific publishing. APE Conferences are carefully curated and well known for offering a broad perspective, varying from the basics of academic publishing, reputation, reliable quality, reproducibility, the role of peer review, sustainability, funding, information infrastructure, open data and open science and projects to discover. As always, the APE Lecture will be given by a promiment speaker.
