Published:20 Jun.2011    Source:BioPublisher

PKP (Public Knowledge Project) will hold on September 16-28, 2011 the 3rd "PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2011" in Berlin, Germany. This is the first time that the PKP conference is being held outside of Vancouver, Canada. 

Given that the landmark Budapest Open Access Initiative, launched in December 2001, will be celebrating its first decade, the conference invites explorations of the lessons to learn, successes achieved, setbacks overcome, and lessons to learn in shared attempts to support alternative publishing solutions and to increase open access within scholarly publishing. The first and second PKP conferences brought together a remarkable array of presentations and participants from around the world, and they anticipate an equally valuable experience in 2011.

Confirmed plenary speakers include Anurag Acharya (Google Scholar), Eelco Ferwerda, Gustavo E. Fischman, Melissa Hagemann, Sigi Jottkandt, Ray Siemens, Astrid van Wesenbeeck, and John Willinsky.
