PKP 2019: REFLECTIONS AND DIRECTIONS

Welcome to the PKP 2019 International Scholarly Publishing Conference, presented by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) in partnership with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Since 2007, PKP's bi-annual conference has brought together participants from around the world to discuss local publishing activities and the latest in open access research. They also provide an opportunity to learn and share innovative work related to open source publishing technologies, including our flagship software, Open Journal Systems (OJS).

In 2018, PKP turned 20. PKP 2019 will explore this milestone further, reflecting on the maturation of open access and the open, community controlled infrastructure that brings us all together.
