Call for Proposals: Library Publishing Forum
The Library Publishing Coalition is accepting proposals for the 2018 Library Publishing Forum, to be held May 22-23, 2018, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The deadline is January 19, 2018.
We welcome proposals from Library Publishing Coalition members and nonmembers, including librarians, university press staff, publishing service providers (vendors), scholars, students, and other scholarly communications and publishing professionals. We especially encourage first-time presenters and representatives of small and emerging publishing programs to submit proposals.
Call for Showcase Participants
The Library Publishing Coalition seeks participants for a showcase session at the Library Publishing Forum’s preconference on open source publishing platforms (May 21st, 2018, Minneapolis, MN). While the formal preconference program will focus on a selected set of publishing platforms (including Fulcrum, Janeway, Open Journal Systems, Manifold, PubSweet, and Vega), the showcase session will allow attendees to learn more about the broader ecosystem of open source publishing software. The deadline is January 19, 2018.
About the Preconference and Forum
The preconference will take place on Monday, May 21st, followed by the Library Publishing Forum on May 22nd and 23rd, with both events taking place at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
The Library Publishing Forum is an annual conference bringing together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; and to strengthen and promote this community of practice.
If you have questions about the 2018 Library Publishing Forum or preconference, please feel free to contact Matt Ruen, Program Committee chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
