New call for posters
In order to allow a maximum of participants to present their valuable work, ELPUB 2019 launches a new call for posters! Ten posters on new advances in Electronic Academic Publishing will be selected and displayed during the Conference.
The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB) has featured research results in various aspects of digital publishing for over two decades.
ELPUB is unique as a platform for both researchers, professionals and the broader community. The conference aims to bring together the enquiring academic, professional and publishing industry minds keen to explore the ever evolving nature of the knowledge transmission within human societies.
This year, ELPUB will take place in Marseille, France, from 2 to 4 June 2019.
Taking as an aspirational starting point the concept of bibliodiversity (see below), the conference will explore the various aspects of electronic publishing in the academic system.
Authors can submit posters which address any aspect of electronic publishing in the academic system.
Preference will be given to posters that focuses on bibliodiversity. According to the International Declaration of Independent Publishers:
Bibliodiversity is cultural diversity applied to the world of books. Echoing biodiversity, it refers to the critical diversity of products (books, scripts, eBooks, apps and oral literature) made available to readers. Bibliodiversity is a complex self-sustaining system of storytelling, writing, publishing and other kinds of production of oral and written literature. The writers and producers are comparable to the inhabitants of an ecosystem. Bibliodiversity contributes to a thriving life of culture and a healthy eco-social system.
The field of academic publishing at large, encompassing all forms of scholarly communication, can be considered as a comprehensive intellectual eco-system where the relevance of the concept can be assessed at many interconnected levels. Bibliodiversity can be considered in relation to the diversity of disciplines, stakeholders, languages, academic cultures and policies, but also content, formats, data and metadata standards, platforms and tools. For a full understanding of the publishing ecosystem, it is essential to gain a better understanding of the incentives that drive it to stronger bibliodiversity or, on the contrary to global uniformization.
Bibliodiversity also plays an important role in the interaction between science and society, particularly when considering innovation and education, and more generally the social impact of research.
Therefore, the conference invites submissions which address any aspect of bibliodiversity in the academic publishing system, including but not restricted to the list below:
- Submit an extended abstract of your poster here by May 26 (see format below). The posters must not have been accepted or be under review by another conference.

- Print your poster as a Kakemono/Roll up. Please note that only posters printed as a Kakemono/Roll up will be allowed for the conference.
Language: posters should be written in English as a lingua franca (ELF), though other languages would also be considered, provided that an ELF translation of the abstract is also made available.
Extended abstract: extended abstracts must be between 1,000 – 1,500 words and contain:
- Title of the poster
