Ramping up relevance in Berlin

The city of Berlin will once again play host to the APE conference in January, with the tagline: Publishing 2020: Ramping up Relevance.
The APE conferences are aimed at providing a better understanding of scholarly communication and the role of information in science, education and society. They encourage the debate about the future of value-added scientific publishing, information dissemination and access to scientific results, and offer an independent forum for ‘open minds’.
