Global Access to Science ^Ö Scientific Publishing for the Future


The Program Committee invites proposals for papers and posters for the
2007 Annual IATUL Conference, which will be held in Stockholm
from 11-14 June.

Science publishing is rapidly changing due to the introduction of
advanced electronic media which give new dimensions to the world-wide
to scientific results. How research is undertaken, is also changing, with
the rapid development of newly established areas such as E-science.
The scholarly communication of the future will be heavily influenced by
the initiatives taken by universities and information providers of today.
Scholars all over the world are engaged in this process and traditional
peer-reviewed publishing is being transformed in the light of different
forms of Open Access. National programs are being set up to support
initiatives and actions to find ways of facilitating free online access
government funded research.

The conference will discuss Global Access to Science - Scientific
Publishing for the Future. The theme is subdivided into five topics. We
try to give
examples of the subjects we expect your contributions to cover:
A.      The emergence/development of new tools and services for employing
and managing the ever increasing
         Sci Tech Information (Semantic web, E-science, Data-/Textmining)
B.      Public access to publicly-funded research (National Programmes
for Open Access, Place of Repositories in
         the New Sci Tech Information Infrastructure, Long Term Access
and Digital Archives)
C.      (The need for) New metrics for assessing the importance/impact of
research findings/results/publications
D.      The Economics of Scholarly Journals in the new Journal
Environment. (New Open Access models; Hybrid Journals; Impact on
         Big Deal Pricing; Handling of Publication Charges; Experiences
of Open Access/Hybrid Journal Publishers;
         Investigation of Author Preferences).
E.      Bridging the gap in dissemination of and access to information
(initiatives to overcome obstacles in promoting and
         disseminating Sci Tech Information from outside Europe and North
America, initiatives to promote free access to
         Sci Tech Information for the developing world)
