Introducing our new sponsor : Métopes
The organizers of Elpub2019 Conference would like to thank Métopes for its support.
Métopes is an infrastructure designed for publishers and to serve the editorial activities of all higher education and research institutions.
In the current transition context from print (subscription-based) business models to digital open access, it provides methods and a set of tools to enable the creation of structured editorial content repositories and to help scholarly publishers to manage the transformation of the publishing and distribution functions in keeping as closely as possible with their goals and missions of research results and datas dissemination. Therefore, its aim is to ensure an optimal circulation and availability of scholarly writings both online (in archives and on platforms) and in print (as books or journals available in bookshops, in libraries or directly to private persons) and to increase the international visibility of French public scientific publishing output.
It is a monitoring, development and training technological infrastructure dedicated to those who produce edited contents and datas outputs. It provides them with methods and tools to implement a standard (based on the Text Encoding Initiative vocabulary) to encode published content as standardized, reconfigurable, sustainable digital collections with rich metadata and high interoperability potential.
It enables publishers to control the full ownership of their digital collections and thus meet the challenge of achieving reasonable open access publishing in full autonomy and sovereignty.
