The University of Kansas Libraries, Open Access Network, Allen Press and SPARC are jointly sponsoring an international symposium, “Envisioning a World Beyond APCs/BPCs,” in Lawrence, Kan., on Thursday and Friday, November 17-18. The symposium will consider current models available for achieving an expansive, inclusive and balanced worldwide open publishing ecosystem. The symposium will provide a live-streamed session during which internationally respected scholars, publishers, university librarians and executives from foundations and organizations will address advanced questions and problems in the open access movement. Additional symposium meetings will explore the future of “openness” in scholarly publishing, as well as responding to and furthering discussions from last December’s Berlin 12 Open Access invitational conference, which focused on “flipping” the current subscription model of scholarly publishing to one that provides free access to readers paid for by article-processing charges from authors or their institutions. click Read More below for additional detail
APTech is pleased to announce the return of the RED HOT Technology Recognition Program at PRINT19 in Chicago (McCormick Place North, October 3-5), showcasing exhibitors’ newest products or services on the event floor.
“Sales opportunities and the collaboration that leads to growth go to the risk-takers, disruptors, and innovators,” says Thayer Long, president, APTech. “The RED HOT Technology participants will have an additional degree of visibility and recognition. Literally providing them a way to stand out in the crowd.”
Featuring publishing and printing technology, equipment, or service that has come to market within the past 12 months, the RED HOT Technology Recognition Program highlights the “what’s new” on the exhibit floor. All RED HOTs will be noted in the Event Guide which will be printed and distributed onsite at PRINT 19. In addition, each recognized product will sport a highly visible RED HOT Technology marker and will be listed online and searchable within the event’s online directory and planner.
Each of these technologies may also be eligible to win one of three RED HOT Vanguard Awards, based on its merit as a game-changer in the industry. The RED HOT Breakthrough Award recognizes products that build on existing technology to significantly advance its use; the RED HOT Collaboration Award recognizes innovative new products that result from a collaboration among different manufacturers; and the RED HOT Pioneer Award will be given to a product that is the first of its kind or entirely new to the industry.
“This program showcases the ‘what’s new’ without judgement, and through the Vanguard Awards, recognizes technology that breaks new ground, opening new markets and business opportunities that the industry needs,” said Long.
