We are pleased to invite you to LundOnline 2024 which will take place at Lund City Hall in the centre of Lund. LundOnline is a conference, from lunch the 22nd to lunch the 24th of October,  arranged by Lund University Library, aimed at college and university librarians and invited publishers. We hope to see participants from all the Nordic countries, which has been the case in previous years.

Turning policy into practice – opportunities and consequences for stakeholders in scholarly communication

Policies and guidelines on scholarly communication that address the access to scholarly outputs are abundant. Goals presented on a policy level are becoming increasingly harmonized. LundOnline 2024 explores the intricate processes of how publishers, academic institutions, and libraries implement guidelines and policy frameworks in scholarly communication practices. Tentative themes include different actors’ engagement with policy initiatives, non-profit publishing, publishing platforms, copyright, and licensing. The conference will aim to create a dialogue between the different stakeholders within the field.

Would you like to contribute?

Please contact us if you would like to share your experiences on topics related to the description above. We are eager to include a diversity of formats and speakers and this year we aim to achieve an even balance between speakers representing libraries, publishers and publishing initiatives.

LundOnline will be an opportunity for all scholarly communication stakeholders to meet, discuss and present their views on current challenges related to publishing and scholarly communication. The conference is sponsored by publishers and free of charge for participants.

The registration will open later this spring. We continuously update our website, so keep an eye on: https://www.lundonline.lub.lu.se/

Join us and engage in explorative and constructive conversations on policy implementation and the future of scholarly communication!
