Please join us next week for our February program, a presentation and discussion of Publishing Makerspaces. Sylvia Miller and John Martin will discuss this fledgling project which had its beginning at the 2014 Scholarly Communications Institute held in Chapel Hill. The goal of the project is to imagine, design and implement new ways of engaging the many actors involved in academic research and publication workflows at the earliest stages of projects. The approach encourages collaboration, interoperability, and multimodal scholarship. Our speakers will outline the general concepts and processes involved in a Publishing Makerspace and then allow for ample time for discussion, questions and feedback.
