Shaping new ways to open the book. A workshop of the HIRMEOS project
Open Call
HIRMEOS final workshop

When: 2 June 2019, 9-18 (prior to the ELPUB Conference)
Where: Palais du Pharo, Marseille, France

After two and a half years, the HIRMEOS project is coming to its conclusion. We have tested and implemented innovative services and tools on five publishing platforms and we now want to explore what still needs to be done in order to support the dissemination of Open Access digital monographs. In this workshop, organized in the context of the 23rd ELPUB Conference, we are going to discuss the development and future perspective of the scholarly monographs together with people who write, read and publish them.

To better plan the organization, we kindly invite all those interested in attending the workshop to register until 15 May 2019. Registration is free.
