The inaugural Scholarly Publishing Symposium, being held at the Pyle Center on Oct. 30, will create a space for campus-wide conversation about today’s publishing landscape, in particular the way in which graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career faculty approach publishing decisions. Topics will include publication options for the dissertation and first book, open access and creative commons, e-publishing innovations, economic infrastructure of publishing, and more. The keynote speaker is Peter Binfield, publisher, co-founder of PeerJ, and formerly of PLoS ONE; additional national speakers and panelists will provide a broad range of perspectives and inspire discussion.
Registration opens August 18. More details, including agenda, presenters, and panelists, are forthcoming.
This event is hosted by the Graduate School and the Libraries, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
