The Hybrid Publishing Lab starts from two premises:
Firstly, digitalisation has opened up exciting avenues for scholarly communications beyond classrooms, research articles and monographs, many yet to be fully explored; secondly, the internet postulates a new cultural and economic logic (principally: open source, open access), which afford opportunities for reorganising the production, distribution and consumption of knowledge.
The Hybrid Publishing Lab explores these developments in three different ways:
- the Hybrid Publishing Lab explores hybrid media formats for scholarly communications in a post-digital age and develops new economically sustainable models for an open access, hybrid publishing as well as an open education reaching beyond the academy.
- a Hybrid Publishing Consortium (including the HyperImage project) will bring partners together in a network supporting independent and radical publishing, bundling and developing technological solutions.
- and finally, a wider research programme on networks, creative industries and the post-digital university supports this experimental research.
The Hybrid Publishing Lab is part of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg Innovation Incubator and part of the Centre for Digital Cultures financed by the European Regional Development Fund and co-funded by the German federal state of Lower Saxony.
