APE 2021 – First Announcement September 2020

Important Announcement: The Future of the APE Conference has been secured!

Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Participants, Sponsors, and Friends of the APE Conferences,
Important Announcement: The Future of the APE Conference has been secured!

Since its inception in 2006, the annual APE Conference has become the annual meeting place for all stakeholders in scholarly communication and scientific publishing. APE Conferences are carefully curated and well-known for offering a broad perspective, from the basics of academic publishing, reputation, reliable quality, reproducibility, the role of peer review, sustainability, funding, to information infrastructure, open data/open science and technological advances in the future.

After 15 years of intensive work as a soloist, I am delighted that the future of the APE conference is secured. Since the Summer of 2019 I have been looking for options to continue my work. Today I am more than happy to announce that I have signed an agreement with the Walter de Gruyter Foundation. For this purpose the Foundation has registered the Berlin Institute for Scholarly Publishing (BISP) gGmbH. Both the Foundation and BISP are registered as non-profit charitable organizations under German law, and neither are controlled by the eponymous publishing company. To find out more information on BISP, please visit www.berlinstitute.org

BISP will continue the tradition and organize the conference over the next three years. During this period, I will act as an advisor to BISP for all activities relating to the successful organization of the conference, and I will chair the Programme Committee. This will ensure continuity and quality.

Managing Director Eric Merkel-Sobotta will oversee the business affairs of BISP in conjunction with German legal requirements. He will be supported by a BISP secretariat that will organize the day-to-day running of the conference and which will also support the chairman of the Program Committee.

More information will be distributed via a press release at the beginning of September.

The next APE Conference, APE 2021, is scheduled for 11–13 January 2021. See www.ape2021.eu
