For those attending ESWC this year we’ll have a panel on Open Publishing at the end of the first main day.

Panelists will include Sarven and representatives from Springer and Elsevier.

Hi folks,

Following fruitful discussions at LDOW [1] and WOW at WWW this week, we've extended the deadline for the Enabling Decentralised Scholarly Communication workshop to 17th April. If you have some rant - or even solutions - about academic publishing, here's a platform!

Contributions and reviews are open, transparent, and all Web-based.

Worth noting that workshop days can be registered for separately from the main conference.

Hi #SemanticWeb #WebScience !

*This a "Web first" Call!*

If you are interested in Web Science and upgrading scholarly
communication to the era of the Web, this is a "Call" for you:

The "Call for Enabling Linked Research" is an ongoing and online effort.
The next in person event is at #ESWC2017 "Enabling Decentralised
Scholarly Communication":



There is a growing list of folks who pledge to keep the spirit of the
Web alive in academic knowledge sharing and peer-review. This call is
intended for all of us who truly want to share our research and
development, and to understand and enhance the possibilities of the Web
for academia. To boldly go where no Web Scientist has gone before! Many
of us are working on different aspects of making scholarly communication
more accessible, so lets try to glue the pieces together.

There are no "papers" (archaic desktop or print based guidelines; no
paper sizes, arbitrary lengths, font-sizes, languages..). There are no
3rd party publishers.

We move away from centralisation as best as we can.

For authors: *You*, the author is the publisher! You decide where you
want to store and preserve your work. At your own or institution's
domain; Internet Archives,, Zenodo and many other long-term
storages are able to keep copies around long term.

For reviewers: *You* get full attribution for your contributions. You
decide where you want to publish your feedback.

There is no hierarchy here. Everyone is welcome to peer-review! Just say
so (if you want to be on the list) or just review and announce your
contribution publicly.

If you would like to discuss these ideas or share experience, join the
chat at or the freenode IRC
network in channel #LinkedResearch . Yes, even these are forms of
centralisation that we are aiming to move away from :)


☠ on the Subject line of this email is a misnomer. We speak in *Web
