Academic Writing, Open Publishing

Straight off the email. Be good. Can’t go, other deadlines but would’ve liked to have had the opportunity.

Interested people are invited to a workshop on Digital Publishing and Open Access Publishing. The workshop features some of the leading people involved in contemporary scholarly communication during the past decade. These include Fibreculture founder, Geert Lovink, who will be in Australia.

The workshop will take place from 10am-4pm, on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, in room 327 of the Robert Webster Building, University of New South Wales, 2052. The Robert Webster building is in the middle of the campus, near the top of the boulevard that runs up from Anzac Parade.

Speakers will discuss both practical issues and ideas. There will plenty of time for questions and discussion. Indeed the final session of the day will invite speculations about future possibilities for academic/para-academic/non-academic scholarly communication.

The workshop is organised by Sigi Jöttkandt and Andrew Murphie from the School of the Arts and Media at UNSW.

Attendance is free (although we’re afraid there will be no catering). It’s entirely likely we might move to a local establishment for drinks afterwards.

If you wish to attend can you please make sure you let Andrew Murphie know by December 10, at a.murphie@unsw.edu.au.
