The Workshop on the Future of Scholarly Publishing took place on the afternoon of August 28 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and will be co-located with the ACM Symposium on Document Engineering.
There is currently much discussion and research about open access, alternative publishing models, semantic publishing, peer review, data sharing, reproducible science, etc.; in short: the future of scholarly publishing.
This workshop aims to bring the document engineering community into these discussions, particularly as many document-centric issues regarding how documents are formatted, exchanged and edited remain unaddressed.
The afternoon session consisted of several short presentations/talks with ample time for discussion afterwards. After the workshop is concluded, presenters were asked to submit a short paper about their topic, which will appear in the Post-Proceedings of the workshop. For generation of these Post-Proceedings, we will be trialling a novel JATS-based workflow which, if successful, could be recommended to the DocEng Steering Committee for future conferences.
