- Hamburg, Germany
- In recent years scientific publishing has changed rapidly in response to the growth of the internet. Thanks to the internet, open access to research and data has become much more common. Apart from the increase in access to old forms of research, the internet has given rise to new forms of commentary, evaluation and publication, via social media channels, blogs, scientific wikis, and scientific networks. These internet-driven changes to the research process have changed the roles of publishers, libraries, and scientific communities.For the workshop, we invite researchers from economics and other disciplines to submit related empirical and theoretical contributions. Among the areas of interest are:- Pros/cons of the review process, and new ideas for improvements- Different methods to measure reputation- Impact of open access on the publication market- Inclusion of research data in the publication process- The changing role of publishers, libraries, and scientific communities- The potential of social media tools (blogs, wikis, twitter, facebook etc.) in scholarly communication[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
