The con­fe­rence “Post-Di­gi­tal Scho­lar: Pu­blis­hing bet­ween Open Ac­cess, Pi­ra­cy and the Pu­blic Sphe­re” tur­ned in a good score­card with nine ses­si­ons, three work­shops, about 130 par­ti­ci­pants and 950 tweets. Or­ga­ni­zed by the Hy­brid Pu­blis­hing Lab, the con­fe­rence took place in Lüne­burg from 12 to 14 No­vem­ber 2014. In this re­port you can read more about the to­pics dis­cus­sed by in­ter­na­tio­nal scho­lars, pu­blis­hers, re­se­ar­chers, pro­gramm­ers, ar­tists and busi­ness ma­na­gers. Pu­blis­hers, en­tre­pre­neurs, li­bra­ri­ans, ar­tists and scho­lars came to­ge­ther in the Lüne­burg Mu­sic School from 12 to 14 No­vem­ber 2014 to dis­cuss the chal­len­ges and chan­ces for scho­lar­ly com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in the di­gi­tal age. How are the wri­ting of aca­de­mic texts and the book for­mat chan­ging? What role should li­bra­ries play in the fu­ture? How can the de­mand for open ac­cess to scho­lar­ship be sa­tis­fied in an eco­no­mi­cal and aca­de­mi­cal­ly re­s­pon­si­ble way? And how can tra­di­tio­nal aca­de­mic pu­blis­hing hou­ses keep pace with the­se de­ve­lop­ments? The­se ques­ti­ons and others were in­ten­se­ly dis­cus­sed and so­me­ti­mes hot­ly de­ba­ted in nine pa­nels and three work­shops at the con­fe­rence “The Post-Di­gi­tal Scho­lar: Pu­blis­hing bet­ween Open Ac­cess, Pi­ra­cy, and the Pu­blic Sphe­re”.

post-digital-scholar-conference-2014-hybrid-publishingThis is the first blog entry of a #pdsc14 review series on the Post-Digital Scholar Conference 2014 written by Luca Brennecke, Student of the Leuphana University.

Everything is becoming Digital. MP3 crushed the vinyl record, YouTube obsoleted the DVD, and now the Kindle is scaring bookshops, publishers and authors alike. As the ephemerality of the Digital is disrupting the analog world order, there’s hardly any realm of our lives that is not at the brink of deep transformation. So is the case with academia. Once the pillar of Truth, the secularized religion of the 20th century, the archaic walls of academia are being sieged from from all sides. Continue Reading…
