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

Hybrid APE

For the second year in a row, APE will be hosted in the Auditorium Maximum of the ESMT Berlin. If you are not able to join us in person, don't worry: thanks to our cooperation with Morressier, the APE conference will once again be a hybrid event.

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.

The APE Award

The APE Award for Innovation in Scholarly Communication was born to celebrate the 18th birthday of the APE Conference in 2023, and it is going to accompany the conference for the years to come:

This award, supported by Digital Science, will be given to an individual who has brought innovation in scholarly communication to the community, through infrastructure, technology, business models, output on the topic, theory, or practice. Nominees can be part of organizations, or they can be independent.

Winner of the 2023 edition:
Vsevolod Solovyov, Co-Founder and CTO Prophy.Science

We are going to open applications very soon – stay tuned!
