Location: HKW Lower Foyer


A day dedicated to round-table demos and discussions to explore possible futures for the indie publisher; how to move to multi-platform publishing, embrace open publishing, the social book and new economic models.
The workshop is hosted by the Hybrid Publishing Consortium, a research group from Leuphana University of Lüneburg, dedicated to “open source infrastructure for publishing” grouping together the many technical and social processes that can benefit academic and independent publishers. The consortium is a meeting point for the many stakeholders in open access academic and independent publishing: authors, readers, publishers and technologists.
The consortium is working on a project in early stages of development exploring the idea of an “Indie Portal”—a multi-platform system and open IPR business model for independent publishers aimed at bypassing online digital book distribution monopolies.


Registration for this workshop is closed.


This event is part of the Post-Digital Publishing Workshop series.
