Meeting on "Publish or perish? The future of scholarly publishing and careers"

Printer-friendly version

To the Force11 crowd.

I am posting to let people know about a meeting that may be of interest to some / many of you.

The meeting is "Publish or perish? The future of scholarly publishing and careers". It will be held Feb 13-14, 2014 at UC Davis.

Session topics will focus on changes occurring in scholarly publishing (in journal publishing, other forms of digital publishing, peer review, and economics of publishing) and on changes in assessment (alt metrics, assessment by institutions, and new models for evaluating scholars). The sessions will be geared towards panel discussions and input from the attendees.

Registration information and other details are available at

I am one of the co-organizers (the other two are Mackenzie Smith, the University Librarian at UC Davis, and Mario Biagioli, from the UC Davis Law School). It would be great if people from the Force11 and Beyond-The-PDF crowd could attend and participate.

I note - we are going to have lightning talks just after the formal wrap of the main part of the meeting (PM on the 14th). If anyone is interested in presenting a lightning talk please let me know.

Sincerely, Jonathan Eisen
