Building Technological Support for Scholarship and Scientific Publishing

The APE Award

The APE conference is keen to bring actors together across the scholarly publishing ecosystem, and one important reason to come together is to share ideas and understand progress in our sector. To recognise those who help push forward the boundaries in our space, we are proud to introduce the APE Award for Innovation in Scholarly Communication .


Academic, educational, scientific, technological, medical, legal publishers, university presses, funders, researchers, authors, editors, librarians, teachers, learned and professional societies and associations, funding agencies, politicians and policy makers, subscription agencies and booksellers, recruiting agencies and technology providers.

ESMT and Schloss

In Berlin again!

We are happy to announce that APE2023 will take place in the European School for Management and Technology (ESMT) in the heart of Berlin.
Thanks to the support of our sponsor Morressier, APE 2023 is going to be a hybrid conference: remote participants will have the chance to be part of the discussion through a dedicated chat.

What We Have for You

The APE Conferences encourage debate about the future of value-added scientific publishing, information dissemination and access to scientific results and offer an independent forum for open discourse.
